This is a very nicely kept Japanese Garden with a large Koi pond and plenty of room to sit back and enjoy life. Check their calendar for events ahead of time. More information here: http://www.csulb.edu/~jgarden/index.html

This is an awesome space to kick back and reflect on life. Very peaceful and hardly ever busy, the Japanese garden provides a very comfortable quiet space to talk or just sit back and let it all soak in.

The gardens main feature are the Koi ponds, and the practice of feeding the fish. The gardens were smaller than expected, but very nice to visit. Parking can be a problem, as the few metered spaces are not well marked. There is additional parking available in the lot with the purchase of a day ticket.

This beautiful little gem at CSULB is an oasis of tranquility and charm. We attended a wedding there recently and the location was perfect. Koy ponds, bonsai trees and a variety of plants highlight this quaint, picturesque garden.

Very quaint and well maintained gardens. High light was feeding the koi fish and ducks. They were hungry! We went on a Saturday when they are normally closed. So make sure you check hours before going. Gardens are on the CSU Long Beach campus. Also, it only takes about 20-30 minutes to walk thru the gardens at a snails pace.

Free entrance, donations accepted. A lovely, small Japanese Garden. I visited late summer, so some plants were not in full bloom. I look forward to a spring visit. Plan to pay for parking.

Really enjoyed walking through this small beautifully maintained garden. Would have enjoyed having lunch there, but no food policy
