This was such a peaceful and beautiful garden. Beautiful waterfalls, zen gardens and koi ponds. Absolutely breathe taking. A relaxing way to spend an afternoon

Lovely green plush gardens. Nice quiet, easy walking. Parking can be tricky...go early.
Many Japanese native plants.

A peaceful oasis in Portland. Although it is winter the scenery in the gardens and the sights are beautiful. Well worth the trip.

“Another must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

These gardens are like a scene out of a Japanese documentary. And the crowning glory is the breathtaking view of Mount hood.

“Beautiful and serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

I've only been a couple times, but it is one of those places I've considered buying a membership so I can see it in all the different shades of the year. Well designed and maintained, supposed to be one of the best in the country. Its a very nice oasis very near the city.
