Small but worth the visit if you are a fan of gardens, plants and/or Chinese aesthetics. Tranquility within the city.

The gardens are beautiful. You feel like you have walked through a time portal. So peaceful and serene. Hard to believe this is in the middle of downtown. We especially enjoyed the tea house after our tour of the gardens.

Authentic. Intoxicating. Changing with the seasons. To describe the Lan Su Chinese Garden in words does not do it justice. A must visit destination to a serene, stunning, and tranquil cityscape respite in the Rose City.

I pretty much had just one day in Portland. This garden, along with the Japanese Garden, were tops on my sightseeing list (which was separate from my places to eat list). I easily walked here from my downtown hotel. If you need sustenance before or...More
