  • One of the best gardens on the Peninsula.. beautiful location and house for a wedding or special event
  • This garden is a gem in Palo Alto. The flowers are beautiful and there are several little nooks and crannies where you can sit and enjoy the peace. Unfortunately, Embarcadero Rd runs right next to this divine place and provides some unwanted car noise. That is the only downside. Definitely worth a visit!
  • A small and pretty garden. Was fun to walk around for about 15 minutes.
  • Oh my gosh I can't believe I have not had a chance to visit until last week. Special natural oasis in the middle of palo alto with an old world charm and natural beauty. Wonderful for a romantic date with your self or significant other ;-)
  • Wonderful hidden gem in San Jose. Beautiful architecture and florals to see.
