Shinzen Japanese Garden reviews
I spent about 2 hours with my sister viewing and photographing rare Japanese Trees and bonsais as well as their unique position by the beautiful cove in North Woodward Regional Park. more »
Such a beautiful spot for strolling and quiet appreciation. The gardens are lovely and you'll forget you're in Fresno. more »
Having lived in Fresno, I felt silly that I had never been here. It really is quite impressive with the range of flora and fauna in the middle of a technical desert. Very peaceful and one way to... more »
I am a great fan of bonsais. I love them. The Shinzen Friendship Garden is an excellent example of the beauty of Japanese gardening. It portrays the intricate, meticulously kept, quiet, unspoken excellence of the Japanese culture. I was amazed at the relaxing peaceful beauty of this place. So clean and serene. I took my grand daughter here and we really enjoyed it. Took a stroll around on the path provided, sat awhile and gazed at the water, the magnificent pheasants and the beauty of the moment. Spectacular. $5 for adults, $1 children and not much more for the entire family. Well worth it.
There is a special quality to a Japanese Garden that evokes calmness and contemplation, especially when it is appropriately maintained. The Shinzen is one such. It invites strolling, admiring koi, soaking in the various species of plant life and calmly sitting and being in the moment. The Clark Bonsai exhibit is an additional jewel that greatly adds to the overall experience. You can feel the love that goes into the care and upkeep of the grounds. That may be why it is a popular location for weddings!
The place is so beautiful! Great for pictures and for just walking around and admiring the place. Not expensive and recommend to go check it out. Not that big though.
Is a nice garden, landscape to see and supper affordable. Cost only $7.00 to enter as a family ticket plus your parking ticket for $5.00 so is an affordable outing for the whole family. You can walk it out in about 1 hour. I recommend this place, Is beatiful!!.
We visited this garden and walked, finding ourselves leaning toward a mindful and meditative experience. This should be a destination for every person in Fresno! The pond, the coi fish, the varied plants and flowers and seating scenic areas over a long winding (and easy) path throughout the garden is not to be missed. If you haven’t been to the garden, plan for 1.5-2 hours to really enjoy and relax.
