This garden built by Chinese craftsmen many decades ago is a wonder. It occupies the better part of a city block and is a series of interconnected buildings grouped around ponds with shaped vegetation. The carefully planned viewpoints and finely built buildinds are a delight.

A wonderful, surprising respite in the middle of the city. An authentic reproduction of a traditional Chinese garden. Don't miss the tea room, with great snacks and a wide offering of teas overlooking the garden.

We stopped in here to visit as we are Chinese and found this interesting. Unfortunately, we just visited the Japanese Gardens which are way better. Not much to do here except snap a few photos.

I asked my tour guide what one place I should visit in Portland if there was nothing else I did. "The Chinese Garden," she said. It was everything she said -- beautiful, peaceful, and such a good representation of traditional Chinese garden design. And the...More

It was a typical raining and fairly cold day in Portland so we chose to do the gardens then when we hoped it would be less crowded. It was a great idea. We were able to leisurely walk through and enjoy taking pictures, looking at...More

Suggest you first walk around the garden just to get the feel and atmosphere. Then take the guided tour for the history and purpose. After that stop into the small tea room for a cup of tea and maybe a light snack. At least that’s...More
