The Portland Classical Chinese Garden

Between NW 2nd and 3rd and NW Everett and Flanders in Old Town/Chinatown, Portland Oregon, USA


This cotton baseball cap is black with white embroidered characters representing Lan Su Yuan on the front and translating these words to Portland Classical Chinese Garden on the back.  Portland’s Chinese Garden is poetically named Lan Su Yuan, which has a double meaning. The characters literally translate to Portland-Suzhou Garden, but the characters could also be interpreted to read Garden of Awakening Orchids; an invitation for visitors to awaken to the wonders of Nature contained within.
