Park Description

The Harold Eastman Memorial Rose Garden is a small park/specialty area featuring a peaceful garden of more than ninety beautiful rose bushes. The garden is named after former Hillsboro resident Harold Eastman, who was the visionary behind the creation of the garden. Unfortunately Harold passed away before the garden was completed, but it was his hard work that brought together the Tualatin Valley Rose Society, the Hillsboro Kiwanis, the Tualatin Valley Garden Club, the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce and the City of Hillsboro Parks & Recreation Department to make the garden happen for the community.

Today the park is maintained by Hillsboro Parks Maintenance, and the roses are tended to by the Tualatin Valley Rose Society (the official adopters of the park). From late spring through fall, the community can visit and enjoy the blooms of a wide variety of roses, all with labels identifying each one. The garden is still a work in progress, so there are always new things to see.

This pocket-park offers places to sit along the paved path to enjoy the blooming roses and rhododendrons.
