  • Great place to have a walkabout and admire the flora, Carps and Japanese house. There are lot of ducks/geese which have made their home here but make sure you avoid their poo all over the path ! Free ...  read more »

  • 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.
  • Beautiful. Geese friendly. Love the train, it's very nostalgic. Koi fishes rule those waters, they demand to be fed by those who visit, so bring your quarters!
  • Cute and peaceful park with a Japanese touch. Nice place to spend an hour if you enjoy strolling and sitting. Adorable Koi and little coin-op machines with food for them if you'd like to. Cool little tea house that seems like it's available for events.
  • A great place to go to after work. It's closed at 8pm during summer. Parking is free after 5pm. Kids would love the ducks and koi fish. Plus, a photo perfect setting.
