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

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).

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.

To get away from the noise and traffic, we enjoyed our walk through these gardens, with many "rooms" featuring different kinds of South Florida gardens.

This is a beautiful garden you can easily spend 30-60 minutes touring the different sections and viewing the artwork on display. The doorsteps to the library are made of actual corals (illegal now) which were very beautiful. When we visited, it was empty so we had a nice quiet stroll.

Thought the Sior one was Maleficent when we first saw it.got closer and it kind of made me think of a character that might be used in Howl's castle. Liked the recovery wing and the... More
