What a nice little serene space to enjoy. It’s not big but it is nice. It’s located inside of San Mateo Central Park. A nice place to come and walk around and sit for a bit to relax and get some zen time.

This park is located on El Camino Real, between 5th and 9th Aves. The Japanese Garden is located inside the park, directly behind (south) of the tennis courts on 5th. You can park under the tennis courts and take the south walkway. You come up facing the senior community center and the fence around the Japanese garden. Proceed south 50 feet and you'll see the gate. Enjoy!
