The China Garden, situated on 12 lush acres in the heart of the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., will display a delicate, harmonious balance between natural and man-made structures. The interactive maps that follow feature renderings depicting the 22 structures, classical Chinese art and furnishings, as well as the landscaping and rockeries for the garden, all provided as a gift from the people of China to the people of the United States. Based on an original design from a team of Chinese designers, the China Garden, offers an extraordinary opportunity to build a lasting tribute to U.S.-China relations in our nation's capital.
