Well I've lived here all my life and had never visited this garden. Boy wish I would have visited sooner. This place is incredible. Clean quiet good for the soul! Don't wait like I did. Easy to do serene interesting sculpture. Great place to relax and gather your thoughts or meditate

It was a bit underwhelming once I visited it. Rock garden seems uninspired. Lots of lush lawns but not much character or design to the space. We quickly went to Lake Harriet scenic by way and did the 3 mile walk around it instead.

Very pretty but small. Easy to do with small children or older people alike. Very doable in an hour.

I didn't know that this was here until I moved in near Lake Harriet a couple years ago but I recommend not missing the peace garden when you visit the rose garden or see the art car parade. What could be better than the combo day of bandshell, hammock reading, walking by the lake, the rose garden and then the... More

This is the location that my daughter and her group choose to take the pictures before one of their formal high school dances. It is a peaceful spot with some paved walking trails, a small bridge and a parking lot. There was only a porta potty for facilities. The flowers and grounds were beautiful. Worth a quick stop.

This is always a great choice of public parkspace to spend some time. Although it may not be a huge space...it is a truly lovely one. This visit was a Wednesday morning in late July. The park was nowhere near crowded...quite peaceful...as the name implies. =] There were several volunteers cheerfully working away on some of the locations. The grounds... More

This is one of the nice features on the north side of Lake Harriet. Keep in mind it's a rock garden (plants that tend to like cool weather), so much of it blooms in the spring. It's still nice in the summer, and you can cross the street to the rose garden if you want to see masses of blooming... More

I live close by so my wife and I make our way around all of the gardens by Calhoun and Harriet. They are all well kept and maintained. Lots of wedding parties make there way here.

if you want to escape the joggers, bikes and rollerbladers this is the best place to go. Find a rock and sit down- or if you wish there are many hidden benches in the shade. Be aware of Saturday wedding photo crowds which can over run the place very quickly.
