The Garden of Surging Waves (simplified Chinese: 沧浪园; traditional Chinese: 滄浪園; pinyin: Cānglàng Yuán; Jyutping: Cong1long4 Jyun4), is a Chinese garden and city park currently under construction in Astoria, Oregon. The Astoria City Council selected the garden as city's bicentennial legacy gift in recognition of Astoria's Chinese heritage.[1]

The Garden of Surging Waves will occupy the northwest corner of Heritage Square — the block bound by Duane, Exchange, 11th and 12th Streets, adjacent to City Hall.[2]

History[edit]

The garden's ceremonial ground breaking took place at Heritage Square in front of Astoria City Hall on April 14, 2012.[1]
