The Chinese garden is a beautiful break from the urban-ness of the city. They charge you a fee to go in. It's cute, has a resto that sells dimsum and tea. They have minimal display of chinese artifacts. It's located in the middle of a...More

We went for a family wedding, and as locals, had not ever been. Shame on us. This is one of the most beautifully kept, tranquil locations. Even if you aren't getting hitched, its a stunning place to tour!

Pretty place to go and decompress and get a glimpse into another culture. Not very big place but we enjoyed.

Such beauty on what use to be a parking lot in the middle of Portland. Take a couple of hours to check this out! Take in all the beauty that the garden has to offer, there is even a tea house to enjoy as well.

This is not an attraction or garden to miss. We had a guided tour. The peonies were on display. Be quiet and just take in everything and don't forget to stop for tea.

This was right in the middle of NW Portland. A neat Chinese garden with lots to see and they have authentic buildings.

Take the tour to learn of the symbology, the placement of the garden, meaning throughout. Ask if the water lilies are in bloom! The bamboo is exquisite too.

Great oasis in the middle of the city, surrounded by a wall. Lots of nooks and crannies for contemplating your navel. Beautiful ponds with flowers and fish. The falling rain was very restful. Wish we had more time to just sit and ponder.

Quiet beauty - a haven in a busy city. Different areas with different feels. A lot to learn. Look at the paving stones - different textures; look at the roof tiles. Incredible attention to detail.
