As a Portlander who has lived in China for the past 5 years, I have to say that the Lan Su Chinese Garden ticks all my boxes for an aesthetically and culturally satisfying place to visit when I'm home to visit during the summer months....More

Enjoyed seeing Chinese Garden. Adult admission is $9.00 used AAA discount and saved 1.00 each. Covered walkways and interesting Chinese artifacts. Beautiful tea house where you sit inside and served tea and food. There was live chinese music played.

We spend several hours exploring this relaxing and interesting garden space. So pleasant and slow paced. Very easy to spend the better part of a day with tea and the views.

Tranquility in the midst of urban blocks. Good for an hour diversion. The setting is idyllic and makes for some great pictures.

We enjoyed this hidden green tucked away inside of the city. Really enjoyed having a cup of Tea while enjoying the lovely sights of your garden!

Much more than it seems. Really enjoyed the grounds, info and experience. Easy to get to downtown and worth the visit.

If you are in Portland for 24 hours then this place should be on your must to visit places. Situated right in the downtown, you will never imagine that there is a paradise within the concrete jungle. The place exports you to a quaint Chinese...More

It is about half a mile from Union Station and unless you have difficulties, I would walk. From the station take four blocks South on the NW 6th Avenue, then turn left onto NW Everett Street and it is four blocks along. The... More
