I visited here in 2016 during Chinese New Year. The garden had special events for children and adults. The docents gave a fine tour explaining all the architectural and decorative features of the garden. The tea room offered several teas and snacks and our visit...More

A wonderful way to spend a few hours submersing yourself into a visual smorgasbord. Meticulously maintained grounds. Beautiful craftsmanship. A gem.

The gardens are a really peaceful place in the middle of a bustling city, encompassing a square block right smack in the middle of Portland's downtown. The waterfall drowns out much of the city noise, and the landscape within the gardens makes it easy to...More

Very lovely Chinese gardens built in downtown Portland which takes up an entire city block. It's a little hard to find and you have to search for parking in the area but it was well worth the stop. Take the tour that they offer which...More

This garden has very interesting architecture. The plants are beautiful & very aromatic. The garden is quite small (one city block). Takes less than an hour to meander through. A bit spendy for how small the garden is in my opinion.

The Lan Su Garden is located in the heart of downtown. It's well worth the time to visit! Take a guided tour if you can so you can learn the significance of arch ways, pebbled paths and the abundant plants. When you want to sit,...More

We only found this hidden jewel after visiting Portland more than a dozen times. The walls enclose a classical Chinese garden that is a perfect compliment to the Portland Japanese Garden. Both give the sense of taking a step away from the real world and...More

This is a miniature version of the Yuyuan Garden in Shanghai, complete with shrines, Buddha statues, a temple and water lily pads. A peaceful place - smallish, but well done.
