A Place for Serenity
Jun 2021
This beautiful garden lies within the botanical garden. The trees and water features are so peaceful. There was plenty of shade even on this warm day. There are also benches statigically placed for rest and quiet meditiation. It was so serene and beautiful. There is a small fee to visit the garden, but it is definitely worth it.

Really enjoyed----$8 to visit---seasonal blooming makes a difference
Apr 2021
We really enjoyed----but part of the reason was the red bud trees were blooming and it was beautiful----but in spring there will be different things blooming at different times---lots of interesting things to see----about 1 hour to visit

A treat year-round
Apr 2021
I recently took a hike at the botanical gardens which was basically a walk to the stroll garden. It was early spring, with trees just beginning to blossom. Lovely. With pandemic conditions, only our group was allowed in. Very quiet and beautiful. In the Christmas season they decorate the stroll garden with lights. It's a treat year-round.

Beautiful place to stroll and contemplate
Sep 2020
On our drive across Missouri, this place hit the spot as we were looking for a place to stretch our legs and relax a bit. Perfect for these COVID times!! The Garden is beautiful and serene with places to relax and contemplate amidst the serene natural surroundings. Japanese maples and other plants and flowers, ponds, waterfall, sand garden, moon bridge, even mud turtles. The trail is not terribly long, but you can go round and round as desired. Reasonable admission fee. Free parking.

Unsurpassed beauty
Sep 2020
It was a gorgeous day but it got even better after going inside this exhibit in the Nathaniel Green Park. Lovely layout and so serene walking and enjoying all there is to see here. Totally worth the extra money it cost.

Lovely walk!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We had a lovely stroll through the garden though it was a bit cold and gray. Nothing like being outside and among the plants to pick up your spirits.

Pretty garden surrounded by a spectacular public park
Oct 2019 • Family
If you're in the area, the Mizumoto garden is a great place to spend an hour. It's not actually that big so if all you do is speed walk through it won't take but 15 minutes, but you'll enjoy it most if you take it slow, sit and relax and take a few pictures. We saw tons of families taking their upcoming Christmas photos.

In addition, the public park area that surrounds this garden is fantastic. There were swings, trails, and a ton of people hanging out with friends or listening to a guy playing music at a mini amphitheater-like area. All in all, highly worth checking out!

Absolutely beautiful. Enjoy the beautiful manicured vegetation and Japanese displays. Have fun watching the ducks and turtles. Admission is $4 per person, but well worth it.
