  • We've been here before, and it is a lovely spot, but the last time we knew they were struggling for money. We drove there today to find it closed(despite google saying it was open) and,in speaking wit...  more »

  • Good parking, no wheel chair access, 5 dollar adult admission, very hilly in places, kids can feed goldfish with bought pellets, it's a nice shaded property. Plenty of Japanese culture, I liked the stepping stones that are along the site, would be good to read about how this Place came to be before entering.
  • Lovely small park, just what I was looking for. There's a beautiful large pond with koi, bullfrogs, dragonflies, and tons of gorgeous water lilies. Although it's only open on weekends, there's a lovely Japanese gazebo with a live musician playing traditional Asian music. The park guide, Mary, is the nicest/most helpful guide I have ever met! She recommends visiting after a storm (bring a plastic bag or something to sit on so your butt doesn't get wet!)
  • I would not even give this one star. The garden is extremely small and you can walk it all in 5 minutes. There is a lady collecting $10 each for this 5 minute experience. Save your money. Your own garden is probably a better experience.
  • Tried visiting and it was "temporarily" closed :( Also it was hard to find via the address online. It is on the cross streets of Dogwood and Oyster Bay.
  • The anonymous Google user that gave this one star is completely uninformed. This is a phenomenal Garden Conservancy location...Certainly not meant to be run rough-shod by some ill-mannered brood. Many times the garden dies with the gardener. Thankfully, this is not the case here and we should be extremely thankful (& respectful). A meditative space. Uneven terrain makes it unhappily a tough go for the physically infirm. A small jewel.
