If you're in need of a recharge this place is great for that. We walked here after visiting the Hammer Museum. Grabbed a patch of grass for a rest, watched the turtles and fish in the ponds, and strolled through the paths. It's a small...More

I was surprised that such a quiet spot existed lol It was so pretty although I was disappointed at the lack of butterflies :( It still was a nice retreat.
