Easy to find. A short walk from our hotel. This is a quiet oasis in Portland. Lovely background music, beautiful landscaping, a lovely little coffeeshop.

Don't rush this visit, leave time to soak in the beauty of the surroundings. Have a tea and snacks, this place is an oasis.

This is a little oasis in the middle of a honestly ugly area of town. The garden is larger than you think with several different areas of varying architecture and plantings. They also have free tours and special exhibits/talks on the weekend. Well worth a trip.

The Chinese Garden is very small, located in the middle of downtown Portland. When in the garden you don't realize you are in the middle of Portland.

The garden admission is $10 per person, which was a little high for the size and amount of time we spent at the garden.

So pretty. Worth the $10 admission. Bring your camera.
Use the map to read about what each room/area is for. Make sure to get your fortune!
