“Hidden secret”

Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden
Ranked #14 of 93 things to do in Long Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This lovely garden is tucked into the California State University, Long Beach. Our three generations went on a hot summer day and immediately felt cooled by the shade and the water. The garden is small but filled with interesting plants and stone artwork. The carp are accustomed to people and come to the water's edge. This is a great place to enjoy Japanese gardening and find a little peace in the world.

This is a lovely place to visit with family and friends - or just for a quiet, solitary, meditative walk. It's especially great for young children who love to feed the koi. And the special events are usually lovely and enlightening.

Beautiful and serene, plus easy to get to and park. There are special events worth watching for; however be careful to check if open as weddings take over on many weekend days.
