The lush greenery of the garden ranging up the surprisingly hilly terrain is a perfect setting for this oriental garden. The pavilion and koi ponds blend with the gardens to make you breath deeper and let your spirit relax.

This garden is just full of greenery and it can bring peace in your mind within a few minutes. I visited with my mom,dad and hubby on mother's day . The trail is easy for any person even she/he is not physically firm . My mom who had a very complicated surgery on her knee last year felt no difficulty... More

This little hole in the wall garden is a great place to spend a tranquil afternoon during the warmer months. A bit on the high side pricewise, it's still worth a visit. Go soon, though, since I have read that they lost some of their sponsorship and may have to close if they can't replace.

Beautiful and maintained place to spend some positive time alone or with company.. The flute makes it an even zen-full experience.. I just wish it even bigger.. Hope to attend the tea ceremony some time..

This is a hidden gem on the norht shore of Nassau, that most people don't know about. It is on a side road and had passed it many time but never realized it was there. It is a hilly wooded area with lovely folliage, a tea house and large koi pond.

A friend told me about this place and I decided to go today for the guided tour and tea ceremony. This garden appears to be a secret and a hidden gem. The terrain is very rough and asymetrical with hills, steps made of stones, and uneven mulch. Make sure to wear rubber soled walking shoes and take insect spray. Steve... More

There is so much to say about this place, it's hard to know where to start. If you like to take tranquil pictures, wait till the day is overcast and cloudy- the richness of the colors and the deep greens will astound you. Peaceful beyond belief, you will find yourself letting your mind wander and catch yourself also being completely... More

Happened upon this lovely place quite by accident & after checking it out on the Internet, opted to make a return trip just to see it for ourselves. Well worth the experience. Parking is very limited & children may not be as soothing as you would want them to be in such a contemplative, serene environment. A true oasis for... More
