Multnomah County has yet to be officially cleared for reopening, but Portlanders can count on the return of at least one city institution.
This Thursday, the Japanese Garden will reopen to the public.
Last week, Gov. Kate Brown announced that public gardens could reopen statewide, even in counties that have not yet begun the incremental reopening process.
One of Portland's biggest tourist attractions, the Japanese Garden closed March 19. Since then, it's had to lay off 90 percent of its employees.
But starting June 11, the garden will be open seven days a week.
There will, of course, be some changes to the normal order of things. Certain paths will now be one-way routes, and the gift shop and learning center will remain closed. Most notably, non-members must buy tickets for specific time slots, since the garden will only admit patrons every 30 minutes.
