Create an itinerary including Lan Su Chinese Garden
The walled Lan Su Chinese Garden is a result of the friendship between Portland and its sister city in China, Suzhou. The gardens are intended to provide insight into both Chinese culture and nature. Suzhou artisans built the 3,700 sq m (40,000 sq ft) garden using 454 metric tons (500 tons) of rock brought from China. It features mostly indigenous Chinese plants. Stroll through the peaceful gardens to discover more than 400 species, including, orchids, bamboos, and water flowers. You can also find a number of typical Chinese garden structures, such as covered walkways, water features, and bridges. Stop in the teahouse to experience Chinese tea culture.

  • One word: Oasis.
  • Visited March 19 and had a great time in this Portland gem in a sunny afternoon. It's on great shape and the spring blooms are out or on their way. I'd forgotten all the detail in this place from the roof tiles to the stones in the walkways, not to mention the joy of some treats from the tea house. And a great price as well.
