We are members and attend all 3 major festivals. The restaurant is 5 stars in our book. Sometimes we go to walk the gardens as an excuse to eat at the Cornell Cafe. It is so cool to hear the bamboo in the wind.

For younger kids we saw lots of fauna: herons, iguana, turtles. You can buy fish food for $1 to feed the koi. The onsite Cornell Cafe served... More

The Taiko Drumming performances are fantastic, as are the tea ceremony demonstrations. However, it should be noted that they need to be booked in advanced in order to guarantee that you will be able to see them. The gift shop has many affordable items. The gardens are lovely.

This is a well worth visit for anyone, young or old. The Bansai trees and plantings, the gardens, the shop...all worth a visit. There is even a cafe here. They have classes at different times that all can attend

Wonderful location for photography and just spending time enjoying the beautiful gardens. Saw koi and baby turtles, as well as a Blue Heron. Wedding location, too.

I visited this place thinking it was a small place but it's not. It's really big. Lots of walking but it is very peacrful. Lots of things to see and learn about. There is a museum and an amazing restaurant as well. They have events on certain nights so I would check their website before going. It was $15 for... More

Get away from the beach for half a day and see this gem ! Walk through beautiful themed garden sections. A history buff will learn about Japanese garden styles, and Delray Beach's Japanese Colony. A gardening buff will love the flowers and plants, a photography buff will enjoy the beauty. There is a cafeteria , run by the same family... More
