Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

Open Saturday and Sunday  

Located in the heart of Chinatown, this home garden offers serenity, history and great chi.  Modeled after private gardens in the city of Suzhou, China, the Garden embodies the Taoist philosophy of yin and yang, where every element-light, texture, vegetation - is balanced and symbolic. 

The architecture of the pavilions, covered walkways, terraces and viewing platforms evokes Ming Dynasty classical design.  Rocks and water are integral elements, while trees and plants, all have symbolic connotations.  Two of the Garden's most intiguing elements are the 43 leak windows (each one has a different lattice pattern) and the groupings of Tai Hu rocks, imported from China's Lake Tai.  Named the World's Top City Garden by National Geographic.


NOTE:   Simply present your voucher for admission upon arrival, and if the Garden is currently at capacity a timed ticket for the next available time slot, or for an available time that is convenient for you and your party will be provided. Please note, our current entrance is located on Keefer Street.
