Location & Hours
It's a cute garden but a little small. They do have lots of Koi who are very friendly and will let you pet them. It's a nice garden to visit if you are already in the area or on campus for something else, but it's not worth it to make a trip just to go to the garden itself. They have a pretty confusing reservation system, I couldn't figure it out but they let me in even without a reservation and it's free entry, so I only had to pay for parking but there's not much parking during the week because of all the students.
This place was really serene and awesome. We tried to go to the 12:00 p.m. yoga but we unfortunately missed it. It's a small but very pretty Japanese garden filled with artists and painters painting. The weather was really nice when we went and it was filled with all types of people. You do need to make a reservation And pay for parking but otherwise admission is free. Will definitely check it out again!
Such a calming, beautiful place. Its free to get in but you pay to park. Its relaxing to just walk around and look at the giant koi fish and enjoy the gardens. The employees were very helpful with figuring out parking...park directly accross the road from the garden. There are also public restrooms there. No food or drinks for sale but you can bring your own and have a picnic.
