And it's FREE

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

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.

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

My husband and I love strolling through the garden whenever we are in the palm beach area . Also check out their calendar for special events such as concerts and art exhibits. It certainly lives up to its name!

I'd say this garden is a lovely place to wander for about 30 minutes if you're in the area. Pretty Asian section, beautiful grounds, quiet.
