When measured against its inspirational precursors in Japan, many of which are hundreds of years old, the Portland garden has come to a maturity with blinding swiftness.

Leach Botanical Garden is sometimes referred to as Portland's best kept secret. It is an undiscovered treasure with an incredibly unique geologic past and quaint personal history. For such a small parcel of property it boasts much diversity. Since the land was placed in the stewardship of the City of Portland and Leach Garden Friends, the property has expanded from the original 4.5 acres to a little over 15 acres. The landscape of the Garden represents not only the desires and interests of John and Lilla Leach, but also has a dynamic representation of expansion, diversity, and ongoing change being nurtured by loving volunteers. The plant collections are mostly what you find in any natural area in the Pacific Northwest - mainly a coniferous forest with varying underbrush. However, there are also many different types of shrubs and trees native to Asia and the southeastern part of the United States, a special interest of Lilla's. Visitors are encouraged to wander their way through more than a mile of trails in this exquisite collection of botanical plants and trees.
