Reviews for Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Walking through the gates you easily forget the city is just steps away. The brochure handed out leads you through a fun and informative walking tour of the gardens. Great place for people of all ages. Stop at the tea house and sip on tea and almond cookies. Look at the online calendar for special events like moon viewing and the Chinese New Year celebrations. In the summer they have evening concerts, that sell out, so plan ahead.

Handcrafted by artisans from Portland's Chinese sister city, this exquisite oasis sits quietly in the middle of Chinatown. Take a guided tour, play mahjong, attend a drop-in tai chi presentation, and whatever you do, don’t leave without sipping a cup of tea in the Tower of Cosmic Reflections teahouse.

It may not be as big as the Japanese garden, but Lan Su is a must-see serene escape in the heart of the city. Sit with a cup of tea and you'll forget you're steps from Old Town.

Small Chinese garden in the heart of Portland. It's a bit pricey in my opinion, but if you can get in for free (locals can get a pass from their library) or discounted then I think it's worth a visit.

With its soaring trees and serene ponds, this is the place to find inner peace in Old Town. – In Short
You can still hear traffic bustling through Old Town when you walk into the Classical Chinese Garden, but after a few minutes, the outside world melts away. Get lost in the details of exquisite craftsmanship as you stroll through meandering walkways and into ornate pavilions. Rain drips from roof tiles, bamboo stands tall amid weathered rocks. Take the time for an organized tour and see more than what meets the eye.

Calm and Cool – A great way to escape the hustle of Downtown. The water cools you. The serenity will calm you. A little on the pricey side (6.50 for adults) but worth the admission. See beautiful chinese structures and wonderful flowers. Located in Chinatown district.

Every Step is a Story – Try to take the tour that they offer, it gives you so much more appreciation and background to what the garden has to offer. Although the garden is not very big, every step and every corner has been given detailed consideration. I find it amazing that they were able to ship so many pieces of the garden from Suzhou, China. The free guided tour is also an excellent way to learn about symbolism within Chinese culture.

Skip the Classical Chinese Gardens – The Gardens are not very big or impressive. Admission is overpriced for what they offer.

My backyard – The Chinese Garden is my backyard. I live in a condo close in Portland and have no garden. I walk to the garden, read a box, drink tea and just sit when I want green relaxing space. This is a new piece of Portland and one of the many places that make Portland the place to live.

Beauty, Peace and Harmony in the City – The most beautiful garden in the city, the perfect place to unwind, relax, and while away a little time surrounded by lush plants, trees and flowers, amazingly decorated buildings, gentle waterways. Step into a Chinese painting for an afternoon, and don't miss the guided tours which will further explain why this is such an amazing place.

sereneness in the city – this is the place to go to find yourself and learn to appreciate innocent and simple beauty. The garden is simple yet regal at the same time. It's authenticity is something for Portlanders to be very proud of!

Downtown Refuge – Hand's down, Portland's best visitor attraction. Well worth a visit.
