Step back in time to 15th Century China at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. The first of its kind outside of China, the Garden offers a glimpse into life as a Chinese scholar during the Ming dynasty. Scholars lived and worked in their gardens, sharing these enchanting spaces with friends and family of all ages. Like any home, a scholar's garden was filled with energy, but also offered quiet moments for contemplation.

Laughter and joy abound as the Garden hosts numerous events year-round that bring together visitors from around the world. To unlock the mysteries of the Garden, guided educational tours for visitors are offered at regular intervals each day. Seasonal school programs enrich the minds of elementary and secondary students as they discover the secrets of Chinese history.

As a bridge between cultures, the Garden offers lively demonstrations, Chinese festival celebrations and diverse art exhibitions. We also feature musical concerts such as the summer Enchanted Evenings Concert series. The Garden may also be rented for filming, corporate events and weddings.

Come experience a "window to another world" at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, named as one of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die.
