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.

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.

take advantage of this wonderful hidden garden. kids love to feed the fish in the pond. parking is easy. they are only opened on holidays & weekends. There are special events such as tea ceremonies. The stroll is perfect for a post holiday morning large brunch.
