I attended a special event here and it was lovely and surprisingly, it's free to get in too! The gardens are lush and pristine and there are beautiful sculptures throughout the gardens. This is a calming, quiet place to take a walk with a loved one or alone.

I love the lotus garden! This place feels very calming and serene, and it's almost pretty quiet as far as amount of visitors while I'm there. Makes for a great spot to meditate or read a book.

To think a garden this breath-taking is free is unbelievable. The brochure provides wonderful history and explanation of the different sections. Don't miss this piece of heaven.

Three of us went yesterday to this place just over the bridge into Palm Beach. We first toured the large free gardens which are maintained by the local Garden Club and then crossed the street to the small museum and theater building, which cost $5 per person to see. The gardens are wonderful even though not much was in bloom... More

If you are culturally curious this is the place to go, Set in a local Spanish style building the offerings are served on a silver platter.

Just walk in and stroll around. It's very well kept and very nice to walk around. Lots of seating corners.

If you are looking for one of the most relaxing free things to do you have to go to the Society of the Four Arts. There is always a fabulous exhibit in the gallery or a wonderful program to enjoy.

We entered through the small but cool King Library, stopping to use the convenient restrooms. As we went into the courtyard, we saw a moon gate to our right. One has to go around to enter the square walled Chinese garden. A peaceful water feature in its center is surrounded by a walkway, shadowed by tall trees. It engenders tranquility.... More

A surprise gem. Pretty and comfortable. Lots of playful lizards and naked statues (I used my thumb to make the pictures less, um, evocative).
