One of the best Japanese gardens in the country. It is beautiful at any season, but especially so in spring and fall. A quiet place to contemplate.

This garden is beautifully laid out and organized, and is a delightfully manageable size. There's a nice sense of spaciousness and privacy as well, a delightful aspect of Japanese gardens generally. Easy to see this while visiting the rose gardens.

Nice location and well tended gardens. A quiet oasis in a busy park. It can get crowded with bus tours.
