A soothing oasis in Monaco!

Very "zen" garden with lovely plantings and koi fish. Stroll around for half an hour! A lovely place.

The gardens are in a lovely position close to the sea. There is a nice big pagoda to sit and relax and take some shade. They may not be big or exceptional, but do make a nice change from the big over towering buildings all around.

Nice, but nothing spectacular - like you would expect there (and especially because the garden is devoted to memory of Grace Kelly)

I did not find the Japanese Garden worth a visit. But if one is tired and/or fond of Bonsai then it can be visited.

Check out the carp fish. Some are huge. It's a peaceful garden area with walking bridges and green grass areas. The plants and bonsai are wonderful

The garden looks really big on the map but it was a bit underwhelming, a nice little park but nothing special.

Very cute small garden right off the beach and main walkway in Monaco. The koi pond, man made water feature and landscaping is artfully designed. Great for a small picnic and respite from the big hotels in Monaco.

In walking distance from the Fairmont Hotel or just next to several busstops one can find a tiny but very nice Japenese garden. One does not need more than 30 minutes to walk around and to see the garden, however the beauty are the few benches which offer a nice spot for a rest.
