Larger than it looks from the outside. Strange location for such a beautiful place. We went on a docent lead tour, and she was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Glad we went. A lot of homeless people in that area, so be aware.

Don't miss this spot - slightly West of the Pearl - a little slice of heaven. The garden says 'care' in so many ways; the tea-house is lovely. Slow down just for beauty!

Absolutely lovely small garden in the heart of old Chinatown. Not the best part of town (nor the worst), but so worth the stop! A nice oasis and calming atmosphere amidst a busy day of Portland sightseeing.

We really enjoyed the aesthetically pleasing layout of the garden - beyond the koi pond and bridges - the stone floor and intricately carved woodwork enhanced the overall experience. Great spit to spend an hour or so

Lan Su Chinese Garden is probably the most authentic Chinese garden in the USA. Portland is the sister city of Suzhou, China, famous world-wide for their gardens. Garden designers from Suzhou came to Portland, bringing with them tons of important rocks and plants to design...More
