  • This is one of the hidden gems of Twin Cities area. The Japanese Garden is very well maintained with beautiful landscaping. There were not many people around when we visited and it was really peaceful to sit by the water. Would certainly visit this again!

  • It's beautiful and well cared for. I'm not sure what they do to keep the grass so perfect but they do. The entire garden is peaceful. The water is nice to sit by and the fish are fairly attracted to people. It's not a game corner nor is it a place to play. It's a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings.
  • Great atmosphere. You won't find any where near here that's not only free but beautiful.
  • So random and weird!! I went here with my girlfriend on the weekend. There was almost no one around and it was beautiful and quiet. Well worth the stop.
