We did a self guided tour of this beautiful garden in the middle of downtown. The attention to detail is exquisite. Do a guided tour if you can.

Small enough you can get through it fast, big enough to feel taken away. Really beautiful garden. They even have a tea room.

A great experience and always a nice place to take guests. We enjoy the Koi and viewing the architectural detailing.

Lan Su is authentic, calming, tranquil, amidst the traffic of Portland. Although the city sounds do drift in, the architecture, foliage, and rock features are tranquil. The occasional tai chi class is reminiscent of larger gardens and parks in China where seniors spend their mornings...More

I was really surprised by the peace and beauty of this place. Informative signage explained its many details and the teahouse alone was worth the price of admission. The small gift shop was packed with interesting souvenirs.

This authentic walled in Chinese garden is a treasure. Lovely plantings, trees, patterned walkways, bridges, a koi pond, tea garden, exhibits, knowledgeable guides - it's truly amazing. Come any time of the year, rain or shine. Most of it the walkways are covered.

the old chinatown is very run down, but the garden is a gem, well worth the admission, take a tour, especially one given by the origami teacher

We didn't know what to expect for a walled-in garden in the heart of the city and were pleasantly surprised. Lush green plants, a pond, bridges, a waterfall, rocks made to mimic mountains, and artwork contributed to an enjoyable and calming afternoon. We found respite...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
