Beautiful and peaceful garden. Great place to relax. A small but very enjoyable space with beautiful koi. The garden is free but you must pay for parking.

We went there for a wedding. It is a very relaxed, romantic, beautiful, serene garden only a.few feet from a busy street- a hidden gem. The staff was friendly and helpful. However, the location only had one single use (one toilet) bathroom. Many of the 100 wedding guests could be seen doing the "gotta go" dance as they waited in... More

A gem in Long Beach....maybe I shouldn't tell you about this beautiful spot on the CSULB campus. No matter the time of year, this garden will transport you to another place. Peaceful, beautiful, always changing with the seasons, it will charm you. It is often used as a setting for weddings and other special events. Children love the opportunity to... More

This is a beautiful Japanese garden, but very small. It took me under 20 minutes to stroll over the entire grounds. I would have stayed longer to take photos, but there were hordes of people everywhere on an 85-degree day. It seems families like to go there to hang out on the banks of the pond for hours. Individuals like... More

A wonderful garden on the grounds of California State University Long Beach. It's well taken care of with staff and volunteers around should one have questions. The large pond has huge koi. A blue heron was trying to have a feast, but was unsuccessful.

We stopped by here on my 45th birthday. It's a nice place to get a touch of nature in the middle of an urban area. The focal point is a koi pond. You can buy food for a quarter to feed them. You can stroll around the pond in a nice garden with a couple of bridges and some benches... More
