Need a quiet respite from the city? This is it and it is just a few blocks from downtown. I love this place so much that I've kept an annual membership to support these gardens, even though I live 2500 miles away. There is a...More

This beautiful little garden offers so many photogenic corners and surprising nooks, it would be a shame to miss it. Add to that its gift shop, small but carefully curated, and it's really a gem not to be overlooked when visiting Portland.

The Chinese Garden and the Japanese Garden are the two most important places to visit in Portland. Add the Pittock Mansion as a third if you have the time. Both gardens are probably the best in the western hemisphere of their types.

This is a stunning and very relaxing place to visit. Even in a small space, there are many things to see and experience. Definitely recommend the tea room!

This is an easy place to walk to from downtown Portland. It is a small garden with not much walking but very tranquil and worth the visit. The buildings are authentic Chinese style, with the unique wooden windows and doors. It would be helpful to...More
