Lan Su Chinese Garden - Review
After the Japanese garden, the city of Portland is also home to a magnificent Chinese garden. At a short distance from the waterfront lies the beautiful Lan Su Chinese Garden which is the largest Suzhou style garden outside the country of China. The garden does complete justice in its attempt to reflect an authentic Chinese garden. The charm of the garden is credited to its lovely blooming flowers, varied and rare plant species, the elite tea house, stone, art, buildings, water, koi, dragonflies and the peace and tranquility emitted by the calm atmosphere in there. Unwind from the day’s chaos by indulging in a pleasant visit to the Lan Su Chinese Garden.

Lan Su Chinese Garden, Portland Reviews
The best part of our Portland trip was here. We were going to go to the Japanese Gardens, but after looking at reviews, decided on the Chinese Gardens instead. It was so serene and the tea was amazing! They even have small food dishes as well. The gardens were breathtaking and the plant guide they give you is an excellent addition to the gardens. Be sure to stop at the gift shop after, I got a lovely new patch for my vest and beautifully crafted chopsticks.
I wish this was my backyard. It’s so pretty and interesting looking that it tricks you from the outside. I was like, “what Chinese garden? Looks like a shabby building in downtown.” Seriously worth going. Never been to China, but my friend has and said the garden is dead on! Plus, they have a whole tea area so if you’re into that, check it out! Bring your girlfriend and your camera. Bring your whole pile of stress because it’ll be gone by the time you leave! So serene. Could get crowded so try to go on off-days or get a pass.
Lan Su Chinese Garden is a wonderful place to get away from the "hustle" of Portland. Even though the gardens are located downtown, you don't hear anything from outside the garden walls. It's very peaceful inside, a good place for quiet reflection. There are always a couple of different art exhibits going on inside some of the buildings. The teahouse is lovely, and is a relaxing environment to enjoy a pot and look out on the gardens. They have many different varieties of tea, something for everyone. I usually try to visit each time I go to the city. Check it out if you're interested in a relaxing afternoon.
Incredible place to visit. It is in the Heart of the City and provide you a chance to walk in a very Serene environment and experience a Chinese Garden. Also had a small tea house where you could experience traditional Chinese tea and sit and enjoy the serenity of the gardens. Would definitely recommend it as a place to stop if you have time.
Beautiful garden in the middle of a quite busy city. When I was there they had a woman playing music as well as another doing fan art. There was also a scholarly man doing calligraphy. He gave me a lotus flower and it was beautiful. Ten dollars will get you in the door and it is more than worth it. The koi fish a large and abundant in the ponds as are sights to be seen. Definitely a serene break.
