  • A nice quiet place in the Hayward/Castro Valley area, good for a relaxing stroll or to read a book. Large koi pond. Nothing special as a Japanese garden.
  • Nice good size garden with big pond, several pavilion sitting areas. The nearby community center and theater building has Japanese roof and architecture so very harmonious landscape.
  • the oldest Japanese garden in the bay area, it's small and hard to find but very nicely tended with a good size koi pond and plenty of places to sit and relax
  • Very peaceful. Perfect for my mom who needs to use a walker.
  • This place is a beautiful hidden gem! I will always come here and show all my friends and family :)
