  • It is a beautiful garden different from landscape which one generally see. It has small bridges, beautiful tress, Lamps, a fall and much more. One can see ducks floating in water or sitting under tree...  more »
  • $5 to explore this garden is a steal! There are so many beautiful plants and trees. I very much enjoyed sitting on a bench to read the informational brochure and being greeted by a pair of geese! They...  more »

  • Not free...minimal charge, but worth it. It's beautiful, very serene, calming, tranquil. I try to learn the plants, so when I can't figure out on the map, I just ask someone. Everyone's very nice and helpful. Something different to do when I have out-of-town guests. Yes, you can smell the reclamation plant, but I love that they use that water, not only to water the gardens, but to cool the buildings! Fantastic.
  • The Japanese garden is a little oasis in Van Nuys that brings traditional and local natural elements into Japanese style architecture and design. Located next to a water processing plant (which has a semi loud noise and a bit of a stink) this place offers a beautiful landscape designs worthy of good photography. Although photography is permitted for personal use, for commercial and occasion related photography must be permitted in advance. Tripods are not allowed. The entrance fee is $5 for adults and $3 for kids and seniors. Parking is free. It's definitely worth coming and enjoying this place with family and friends.
  • We hit this place on our tour. We went by red line to North Hollywood. Than have taken the Orange line, which is actually a bus. Until Woodley. Unfortunately the Japanese Garden seems to be open only Saturday and Sunday. At the Woodley station we walked about a mile to find the entrance. Could be an interesting place even to rest...
  • Just plain beautiful. The garden reminds me of gardens I viewed in Tokyo. There's a low admission charge. Discounts for seniors. Free parking. Wheelchair accessible however, the trail through the garden is soft. There is a ramp into the box-office/gift shop. Free standing toilets are available next to the gift shop. Wheelchair access maybe difficult.
  • I love Japanese gardens except this one. If you are a professional photographers this is the last place you wanna be. They don't allow any kind of tripod big or small. 'No change of clothes' (really!) The water is dirty. No fish. Because of the water plant next door the place smells like sewage.
