These Chinese gardens are in the middle of a not so nice neighbourhood of China Town. They are nice gardens but I have seen much better in other states of the US. We went close to close time as they were setting up for a...More

Such care was taken while building this garden. The rock is pretty, the structures are awesome. There are paper art exhibits on display. Very nice garden in the middle of the city.

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.
