This is a small Japanese garden on the grounds of Cal State University. On a cloudy winter day, the highlight is the koi collection and giving them food. There are many beautiful colors and patterns.

CLOSED UNTIL THE 19TH OF JAN. They actually let me in because it said it was open online. Go go go go go. Take time to be with yourself. Again this isn't for kids it is for people who understand nature and silence. I find these places so nice to find myself and reach deeper into my purpose.

The day we visited the garden, they were performing maintenance on the pool and koi in the pool. Unfortunately the maintenance distracted from the beauty of the small garden. I'm sure it would be very nice under normal conditions.

Built in 1981, the garden has the maturity of a much older place. It's meticulously maintained and lovely. Although a small area, there is a lot to see.

A delightful oasis in the middle of the City. The Koi pond is tranquil, beautiful, and relaxing. Meditation in the garden would be lovely. Enjoy yourself here.

Small but beautiful. A great place to relax, mediate, read and to just gather your thoughts. It's located on the University of Long Beach , Bring plenty of quarters as the parting is "meter only" and 50 cents will only get you 12 minutes and the maximum parking is 1 hour. Lovely gardens and the koi are beautiful. The park... More

all of the koi fish are beautiful and the garden is so peaceful. It is not that big but it's good enough for a quick visit. Bring a plastic bag to get koi food for a quarter.

It looks bigger in pictures. But really small garden. Just a small circular garden with lot of people.

This is a cute Japanese garden nestled in CSULB campus. There's free to get in and parking meter is in the front of a garden. I went to this garden many times and it was a lovely, peaceful garden. It also has a big koi pond, small waterfall and a tea house.
