Washington Park now covers 400 acres of the 5,100-acre Forest Park. The formal northeastern corner developed into a European style of park when prosperous Portlanders admired East Coast elegance. Frederick Law Olmsted’s firm developed vistas and a master plan. The southwestern corner, a more-informal, child-accessible, and nature-oriented park, has a zoo, museums, the tranquil Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial, and access to trails throughout Forest Park. The longest trail, Wildwood, begins here.
