Hidden Gem

Beautiful little Japanese style garden in the park lands. Lovely to stop for a quick quiet wander, a meditation or even for a picnic. Most beautiful when the trees are flowering.

Lovely place for a quiet interlude during a busy day. It is a calming place to eat lunch - or a place just to sit quietly.

Visited on one of the extremely hot days in Adelaide. The Garden is rather small, but nice and shady with little lake, a Zen garden and a nice path that runs thru trees and shrubs.

A small but beautiful garden in the heart of Adelaide. Take a moment to unwind and relax in the tranquil surroundings.

There never seem to be too many people here, so it's a great place to sit down and relax, walk through and take in the sights, or bring a date? They do not allow food in here, so strictly no picnics. It is about 80% under shade, so a good idea on a sunny day. Obviously Japanese flora would die... More

I went there with my family after the new year and we enjoyed its quite atmosphere. The garden was small but well maintained. It was quite a hot day when we visited but there were plenty of shaded areas where you can take a bit of rest. There are small fishes, kois and turtles in the pond. We also saw... More

What a surprise to see this small but beautiful garden literally hidden away from major access. Even locals are not aware of this little hidden gem which is free to enter and relax within.

I first saw this garden years ago, now it's unrecognisable as the same place. Not having visited gardens in Japan, I don't have a lot of benchmarks, but this garden seems to embody the essence of Japanese gardens. Walking through it, the garden unfolds before you. An engaging, changing landscape of colours. textures and sounds. I could imagine spending quite... More
