“A wonderful spot for tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2012

It was wonderful even in February -- quiet and lovely. I'm sure it's a madhouse in Spring/Summer

“Probably better in the summer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We were there in February and though it's a lovely place I'm sure it would be much prettier in the spring or summer. There were very few flowers and most of the trees were bare. It's very peaceful with pretty water falls.

“Must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

Get on a tour for your best use of time. Very informative. Beter than going to the more expansive Japanese Gardens in the City Park
