nice and relax ion place to visit

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.

Beautiful manicured grounds. Lots of koi to feed. They'll eat out of your hand. Free to everyone. Parking is a bit tricky. Didn't know where to park so I fed a meter. Didn't want the rental car towed. Another nice out the way place to find solitude and spend some time reflecting. Beautiful place to take pictures also actually visited... More

Beautiful manicured grounds, very restful, contemplative, and free to see. Plenty of seating to sit and enjoy. Loved the koi & ducks.

Take the kids (any age) too. Lovely little Japanese garden. Well worth on a sunny afternoon. Recommended 1 to 2 hours plus driving time. Sit down and wash the details of the WOW effect garden. Recommended MeuterMedia

This is a great place to meditate, pray, take pictures and just enjoy some serenity. The grounds are very well kept and the staff are always kind and accommodating.

We were traveling with two physically challenged relatives and we really enjoyed the size of the gardens. It's a nice way to enjoy 45 minutes of Japanese Gardens. Can't believe they didn't have Cherry Trees, though. I was hoping to see them in bloom but was disappointed this garden does not have any. Nice place to visit.

I have visited this Japanese Garden on several occasions. It's beautiful for sure but WOW did it ever transform into the most beautiful garden wedding and reception area! I commended the bride and groom for selecting this spot. It was truly a stunning wedding thanks to the beauty of the Japanese Garden and to those who hosted the event.

Lovely place to bring the family and experience the lovely Koi fish and Gardens. I also attended a wedding here and it made a lovely back drop. The Image show was taken around 2007 and i donated it on canvas this year. Hope you enjoy the calm and colorful gardens like i did. warmly, Rita Ireland
