Beautiful, interesting, right in town. A gem for Portland that is worth visiting again and again. It can get crowed on school holidays so plan ahead.

We went on Valentine’s day and enjoyed our walk through the garden. They close at 4pm so get there early. It was interesting and loved the pond with the dragon and flowers. Great architecture. Make sure you go when it’s not raining.

A true gem in the middle of the city. Unbelievable that I've lived in the area for 25 years and never visited this beautiful sanctuary in the midst of a bustling city. We went as a group from work. A great change of pace. The...More

While the garden is small and interrupted by lots of city noises, it’s a beautiful celebration of culture. The tours are free with paid admission, and I highly recommend the tour. It gives you a better appreciation of the work put into making the place...More

There is a 10 usd entry price, pretty but not amazing, maybe for 5. Some.plants and buildings and a gift shop in the end. Ok if bored, but not worth it if you have been in China

Only a block in size, as you meander along the paths, you forget you are in the middle of a city. A lovely escape, this is a charming garden.

As has been said, this beautiful garden is well worth visiting. We were there in January so not an explosion of color but still much to experience. Our visit was greatly enhanced by our tour guide who explained the significance of the garden elements: everything...More

One of the cultural prides of downtown Portand is the Lan Su Chinese Garden, built brick-by-brick from the original in China. A quiet peaceful place of water, gardens and architecture that celebrate solitude and reflection.

Chinatown is no more you have 1 block of secluded gardens and ponds surrounded by high rises. The pagodas are so unique and even in winter the gardens are worthwhile visiting.
