Enjoyed the tour of Lan Su Chinese Garden. Beautiful buildings with plenty of places to sit and quietly reflect while enjoying the surroundings. This garden is definitely the Yin to the City's Yang.

This is a place you should absolutely dive into... Not litteraly, though the fish, sorry, the Koi pound, is so attractive. But this place provides for a magical moment in the city of thousands bridges and cranes and, luckily, even more roses. I loved looking through the moon or leaves shaped apertures in the walls. The place is a kind of escapade into the gardens of Suzhou... without the jetlag. Thank you Portland for this place and the many others you have to offer, with a bunch of ... roses.

A must. They have small exhibitions, concerts, etc..

Wow this garden is a must see if you're in Portland. We spent over 2 hours enjoying the beauty, serenity, and peacefulness of this garden. The Tower of Cosmic Reflections teahouse is perfect for lunch and we were lucky enough to be serenaded by a guzheng player. There are so many beautiful views, rooms, paths, and gardens within gardens to explore here. Don't miss it.

Great place to spend an hour to marvel at the beauty and the detail. I have to admit I'm not much of a garden person but I was very impressed with the facility, the gardens and water feature.

This garden is small, but impeccable. The installations are lovely to the eye and we particularly enjoyed looking in the tea house.
