“Koi Fish and beautiful flowers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I love this place. I have been here for weddings, and I took my Mother out there one Christmas Day. She got a kick out of feeding the Koi fish.

“A hidden treasure.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Tucked in the corner of Woodward Park is this gem. Springtime is spectacular when the trees are blooming. There is a family of Peacocks that live here and they are really a kick.

“Not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went in July, so maybe it's just that there was nothing in bloom, & nothing really unusual in the landscaping. It was peaceful & there were a lot of ducks (too many really). We also saw a couple of peacocks. It looked like Woodward Park would be a nice place to spend the day with your family, but I would definitely not make a special trip just to see the garden. There is a $5.00 parking fee to get into the park itself (free if you're a senior) and a charge to get into the park. It's not a lot, but still I wouldn't pay just to go to the garden.

“Great afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Beautiful, we got to see tons of baby geese. All the kids there were excited about getting to see the big fish, geese, peacocks, and one turtle. Not a huge garden, but a fun way to spend a couple hours. Next time we will definitely bring a frisbee.
