Amazing park. Best time to visit would be summer or fall. Perfect for kids! However they don't allowed wedding pictures. May be you can request a personal tour and conduct wedding photo, but I am not sure about that!

After having visited the San Fransisco Japanese Garden and hiked across Japan, this small garden was not the most amazing place, but....in the context of a relaxing hike through the Arboretum, this garden was a wonderful add on.

Sure, this is a small garden in US terms, but has many hidden spots to discover. Don't rush. Take your time to see everything from every point of view.

Be sure to bring your camera! Beautifully designed Asian park with artistic trees and blooming plants. Ponds contain Koi, which you can feed (fish food available at entry). A favorite for wedding photos--spring and autumn are particularly lovely.

This is a small but beautiful Japanese garden. The paths lead around and over a lovely pond that has large koi, some turtles and lilies. The trees and bushes have been lovingly trimmed making this a very beautiful and peaceful garden.

We visited this park on a Sunny, Sunday in July. Entrance fee is $6 p/p but it's still well worth a visit. This park would be best to visit in spring or fall, for the beautiful maple tree colours in fall and wisteria in spring....More

It is tiny but worth the visit. Unfortunately, the sound of continual car traffic kills the tranquility one expects visiting a Japanese garden.

This garden is located on the site of University Washington/Arboretum and has been here for decades. A great place to relax and to enjoy an authentic Japanese garden.

No, cafe or food. We ate at the waterfront.
