I was surprised to find this beautiful, tranquil Chinese garden in a not-so-glamorous old town. Once in the garden, the peacefulness of this place would immediately cut out any unpleasant scenes you might have seen before getting here. The garden offers great architecture with some...More

Beautiful Chinese gardens in downtown Portland. Exquisite plantings and a beautiful tea house. Be sure to see the Chinese bonsai. Just a beautiful place to visit.

Walking around downtown Portland, I decided to tour the garden. At $10 for the whole day, the price was very reasonable. It was quite remarkable to find such a beautiful, tranquil place, especially compared to the surrounding area. While not requiring a lot of time...More

One of the best attractions in Portland. I spent two hours in this slice of Nirvana. I even bought some beautiful art. I was deeply impressed with this garden and waterway.

What a treat. It was the week between Christmas & New Year, a rare sunny day, and a beautiful experience. Instant serenity as I passed through those gates. It didn't even matter that there were other visitors. Everyone was quiet, calm and respectful. We had...More

Small but worth the visit if you are a fan of gardens, plants and/or Chinese aesthetics. Tranquility within the city.

Loved the tour - definitely take one if you go since it's free with the admission. Gorgeous area and the details provided in the tour are amazing. Cute little gift shop

The gardens are beautiful. You feel like you have walked through a time portal. So peaceful and serene. Hard to believe this is in the middle of downtown. We especially enjoyed the tea house after our tour of the gardens.
