|About these ratings|
Occupying an entire city block, the Portland Classical Chinese Garden is the largest garden of its kind outside of China. Designed to bring tranquility to its bustling surroundings, the gardens feature the type of landscape often seen in traditional Chinese scroll paintings. A winding pathway leads you through several pavilions and around a small pond, providing a variety of different views of the gardens.
Nestled in Portland's Old Town / Chinatown district -- just north of the downtown area -- the Portland Classical Chinese Garden opens its doors to the public every day at 10 a.m. with closing times varying between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. depending on the season. Admission is about $8.50 for adults and $6.50 for children. For more information, visit the garden's website.
