    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 »

    I've been to the Japanese Stroll Garden a few times, and it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on Long Island. It's so green, lush and tranquil. I can't express in words the feeling you ...  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.
