Downtown walk
Jul 2021 • Couples
We stayed downtown and walked to the garden. It was very beautiful. It was a nice and calm place in the middle of the city. Had to walk by a lot of homeless people. I wouldn’t do this in the evening or at night. But it was worth the walk. We enjoyed it.

Serene garden in the middle of a bustling city
Jun 2021
Well worth visiting this is a gorgeous array of temples, flowers, water features, a tea house, gift shop and a large quantity of amazing koi fish.

Enchanting Chinese garden - quick, free and the workmanship alone is worth your time!
Jun 2021
Rock work must see - extraordinary rock hand-laid flooring, worth it just to see the walking surfaces.

Beautiful, small, very doable for all ages and abilities, and best of all, FREE! Downtown - no tour needed...just walk through after breakfast or either side of lunch for a lovely and peaceful time in a big city. a wonderful place to experience the beauty of another culture, and to take a break from the briskness of life in a big city. A journal or computer for a short period of reflection - great place and atmosphere.

Wonderful surprise right in the city!
May 2021 • Friends
This garden is just beautiful and peaceful. We loved the authentic buildings and large koi pond. Right in the downtown area, the tall buildings dwarf the exhibits. Worth the admission fee to see this wonderful museum.

A beautiful, quiet spot in the heart of Portland. It's not terribly busy, even on weekends.We spent about 45 minutes in the garden.

Homeless Encampment

Had to walk over homeless people to get to the garden. Another experience in Portland ruined garbage, homeless tents, etc.

Quiet, meditative spot in the middle of the city
May 2021
This is a lovely garden in the middle of the city. We were easily able to park on the street (paid). Covid restrictions included timed entry, as well as a reduced crowd, which was kind of nice. Because it wasn’t overflowing with people, you could walk along at your own pace. Still, it only took about 35-45 minutes to walk through. There is a tea house inside, but we didn’t stop.

Good place to relax and enjoy the setting. The self-guided tour was perfect with a smartphone. Remember to buy tickets online prior to showing up to ensure admission.

I visited the Gardens today for Lunar New Year. They can’t do the Lion Dances or special crowd type events, but the garden was beautiful. They have very Covid safe protocols, timed entry, limited admissions. The gardens were beautiful and tranquil Worth the visit. Enjoy!
