Lan Su Chinese Garden, formerly Portland Classical Chinese Garden, is located in Old Town, in downtown Portland. It occupies one city block and was built in cooperation with Portland’s sister city, Suzhou, China.
Lan Su, translated, means garden of the awakening orchid. Spot illustrations reinforce key elements and themes that educate visitors about another worldview; one that places emphasis on nature to find true meaning. Information is easily found using the always available map flap and tiered index-style pages, making sure visitors don’t feel lost and are easily able to explore every nook and cranny of the garden.
