Small but intimate garden in downtown Portland features many Chinese structures, gardens, and fish. The path through the park is very relaxing. There are even classes for TaiChi during the morning.

The Lan Su Chinese Garden is well worth a visit. The gardens and architecture are beautiful providing a serene space in the middle of Old Town Chinatown. Take some time to enjoy the subtle beauty and walk away refreshed. Enjoy!

Love going here when I walk downtown. I'm a member so am there often and meet friends there. Usually I stop by the tea shop and spend a leisurely time visiting friends and enjoying the great tea.
