  • Beautifully landscaped, a bit poorly maintained because of all the inconsiderate, unattentive parents letting their brats trash up the place. Visit during school hours - much more peaceful!  more »
  • This place is beautiful, every time I've had been at this place was perfect, The photos of my son's graduation was there, our family time was there, one or two dates was there, me and my friend times ...  more »
  • Coming from the USA, this Japanese garden seemed very small and not too decorative. Best part was meeting some very friendly people n speaking with them at length.  more »

  • 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
