    Sounds pretty big. The Portland garden seems a bit tight to me; I haven't gotten the same feeling from the Vancouver one, at least the larger, main part (I haven't been in the smaller portion).

  4. This is exciting news. I am looking forwards to it. For those who are interested on learning more about Chinese Classical Garden, I would like to share this classical garden website:
    http://www.allchinanet.com/chinese_garden/chinese_garden_background.shtml

    It contains information about Chinese garden culture background, elements, design methods and integration with Chinese Classical Architecture, etc.

    The one in Portland may be tight, because of where they have it, and the value of the land. Downtown is expensive land. But there is a certain district there, that I think they tried to fit it to.

    I have two photos of the Portland garden on this album, I think #14 and#15....

    At number 14, click first to get slideshow, and when it gets to slideshow, click the tiny text under the frame that says "large" or "original" - it will show the detail of the stonework on the ground. The stone was every bit as good as any other aspect.
