Oregon Garden Update

OPB | Oct. 30, 2008 1:30 p.m.

OFG update looking at what dreams did and didn’t come true at the Oregon Garden since we last visited in 1999. Ambitious plans once called for over 200 acres of landscaped gardens, but the estimated 400,000 visitors never materialized. The garden’s have grown over the past ten years, but bankruptcy and sparse attendance have scaled back those ambitious plans to a more manageable 80 acres. See for yourself what a difference a decade can make.
