We really didn't have enough time to walk everywhere but the park is beautiful & peaceful. The Italian garden is gorgeous with the pillars, waterfall, roses & pergolas. We had a beautiful day to just wander around . We went on a Friday afternoon, it wasn't crowded, it wasn't too hot & we got to see a bit of a wedding rehearsal that we assumed was going on the next day. The Japanese garden was nice with the big pond filled with large koi, they seemed to think we were going to feed them because they followed us around. The Japanese garden had a very nice waterfall that you can get up close to, but don't get too close the rocks can be slippery. You really need about 4 hours or so to really enjoy the park. There is plenty of open space to possibly have a picnic. There are some animal exhibits but we were there late so I think that they were already closed. Mother Nature at its best.
