  • Must visit if you've never been, and it's a sweet slice of peaceful heaven. This place is often frequented by locals and used for weddings, photo shoots for birthdays or small get-togethers!
  • Great garden! Me and my wife found it even more spacious and nice than the one in San Francisco!!
  • Nice serene place great for an evening stroll. Paid parking lots on either side of the park, convenient but tad pricy if you plan of being there for a short time..
  • This is a very small park. Maintenance is very poor. Ponds have not been cleaned. Lot of funds growth in the pond. I think, they have fund problem. Not much of fish and duck in pond. Since it is Japanese park. I was under the impression that there would be lot of bonsai and special trees in the garden. I could not find any difference between other parks and this one. Not very good place. Not worth visiting this place.
  • Peaceful place to walk around and take pictures. Inspired by similar garden from Japan. Can walk entire park in short amount of time
