The 68-acre Jenkins Estate is located on the northwestern slope of Cooper Mountain and offers stunning views of the gardens and Tualatin Valley.
The Jenkins Estate is designated as a National Historic Site and is home to historic buildings and gardens built in the early 20th century. These buildings and their surroundings represent the disappearance of the countryside and the elegant lifestyle.
Visitors can take a self-guided tour to explore this trail for approximately two miles.
The garden was designed by the Prime Minister of Canada’s gardener and planted in a quaint traditional English style. In the initial landscaping, many types of plants were imported from around the world, many of which still exist as unique specimens and shrubs.
The 1.6-acre rhododendron Garden is the first garden outside the iron entrance gate. Other areas of the house emphasize the perennial boundaries, flower meadows and waterfront. In the herb garden you can see geraniums, ears of lamb, lavender, rosemary, chives, thyme, etc.
There is a cobblestone path in the garden, which creates a traditional feel. The garden has a swimming pool, a rock garden, a cut flower garden and a greenhouse.
