The Chinese Garden and the Japanese Garden are the two most important places to visit in Portland. Add the Pittock Mansion as a third if you have the time. Both gardens are probably the best in the western hemisphere of their types.

This is a stunning and very relaxing place to visit. Even in a small space, there are many things to see and experience. Definitely recommend the tea room!

I visited here during a recent trip to Portland. The garden is really lovely. It is quite small but very tranquil with a circular path going around a koi pond. Plantings are well-kept and fit well into their settings. There are quite a variety of...More

We visited the garden Sunday morning and thoroughly enjoyed it. The garden was built by Chinese tradesmen from Portland's sister city of Suzhou in China. They did a fantastic job. The detail in the buildings, walk ways and gardens are great. Our guide Carol had...More
