Adjacent to Henderson Park, it is a peaceful oasis where you can walk and relax at your leisure. I visited early afternoon; so I didn’t see any light displays. I still enjoyed my visit very much.

If you need a place to just take a moment to yourself or have a outdoor date and more, check out the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. Excellent variety of activities, but also a hidden gem for those needing a peaceful moment.

This is such a pretty place whether it’s in the summer, fall or winter. So pretty and peaceful and educational as well. The landscaping is kept immaculate which adds to the level of beauty this garden has.

A wonderful, quiet hideaway in the city, beautiful at any time of year - when the flowers are in full bloom and during the winter lights festival. Grab a hot chocolate and go for a stroll!
