If you have 30-45 minutes to spare, the Japanese Garden is a must. Everything is lush and green and so relaxing. Plus, the gardners are very knowledgeable about the gardens.

Strolling through the gardens is very peaceful. The grounds are meticulously kept and well maintained. Photo opportunities anywhere you look. Absolutely gorgeous!

The Japanese gardens were nice to visit, but we didn't think they were great. Had some great landscape, but not much information was offered about the meaning of things unless you took a tour.

We took our friends to the Japanese Garden and they were so impressed. I loved all the background music that was playing.

My husband and I have visited these beautiful gardens often during the past 15 years. They are beautifully designed and very serene. Go early or late in the day to avoid the crowds, especially on weekends. And bring your camera.
