Lan Su Chinese Garden
A year-round wonder, the Lan Su Chinese Garden is an authentic Ming Dynasty style garden built by Suzhou artisans, that brings together art, architecture, design and nature in this 2,000 year old Chinese tradition. The garden takes up an entire block of the city’s historic Chinatown district. Since opening in 2000, its covered walkways, bridges, open colonnades, koi-filled ponds, pavilions and richly planted landscape framing the man-made Zither Lake have created an urban oasis of tranquil beauty and harmony. It’s an inspiring, serene setting for meditation, quiet thought and tea served at the Tao of Tea in the authentic teahouse at Tower of Cosmic Reflections, as well as public tours of the grounds led by expert horticulturalists.
