This garden is fantastic - so peaceful and interesting. The staff is very helpful, too, and the tea house is a relaxing place to enjoy.

Easy to find. A short walk from our hotel. This is a quiet oasis in Portland. Lovely background music, beautiful landscaping, a lovely little coffeeshop.

Don't rush this visit, leave time to soak in the beauty of the surroundings. Have a tea and snacks, this place is an oasis.

So pretty. Worth the $10 admission. Bring your camera. Use the map to read about what each room/area is for. Make sure to get your fortune!

We loved our visit to this Chinese garden! It is really just as good as the ones when saw in Suzhou (China). It is said that this is the best traditional Ming style garden outside China and we do fully agree!

This was a lovely experience. We didn't take the tour and enjoyed wandering round on our own. It was well worth going to.
