This was by far my favorite tourist sight in Portland. A beautiful traditional Chinese garden, with lots of interesting interpretive material and helpful staff.

Beautiful and peaceful place to visit. I walked around this lovely garden enjoying the details of the architecture. I spent a good hour just sitting around and enjoying the tranquil setting. An afternoon well spent.

At every turn there is another intriguing view and arresting detail, making the garden feel much larger than its city block. If you don't tour with a guide, be sure to read the brochure. Suzhou (near Shanghai) is known for its gardens, and craftspeople from...More

This is a lovely block square garden created in the heart of downtown Portland, in an area that was once Portland's Chinese and Japanese quarter. Lan Su was built by Chinese artisans from Suzhou, which was known in China for the beautiful Ming era gardens,...More
