Wonderful oasis in the middle of Delray takes you away from all of the noise and bustle of the outside world into a paradise of peacefulness.

This location is a very unique break from the normal attraction. Most attractions are designed to generate adrenaline high. This location fosters the opposite reactions. I sat while a Japanese woman continued the long process of prepping for the Green Tea Ceremony - not conducting the actual ceremony. The preliminary functions are quite staggeringly long. I did not stay for... More

The Morikami is a beautiful place--serene and restful. The paths and water transport you to another time and place, where you can forget your problems and just relax for a few hours. I've been there several times and am never sorry.

A must see & do in Delray Beach! The grounds are just beautiful and everything here is so peaceful. You can easily spend an entire day here. As the gardens are outside please be cautious of the weather during the summer months, it can get very warm in Delray, especially during August and September. Truly spectacular in the winter months... More

Great walking tour with my mom. Shady on one side and more open on other. Well kept up and scenery changed up since last time I was there. Could not eat at cafe as it was overly busy!! Gift shop was stocked with nice things.

It rained heavily, and as the entrance fee does not include rain-checks, we waited out the rain in the cafe, where the California rolls, and the cake, were delicious. Great ceramics and other items in the gift shop. Even in a drizzle, the park was beautiful. I expected the rock gardens to be more interesting, but perhaps because of the... More

I took my mother and my two Aunts here when they came to visit. We enjoyed the beauty and the serene atmosphere. One of my aunts had just finished her chemo a month earlier and I knew she would enjoy this. We went in the fall so it was perfect weather. There were places to sit along the way for... More
