“Take two hours of your life to remember forever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We had not visited the garden for several years. It is even more beautiful now as the trees are getting larger. We love the craftsmanship of the carved wood.

“Take Your Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

A wonderful place to take some deep breaths in busy downtown. The floors are hand made from small stones and in various patterns. Although rather small, count on a good hour to fully appreciate.

“oasis in a city”

I loved visiting this little garden. I could just sit here all day long and feel like I'm visiting a different world. Def worth the trip here.

“Small but packed with nice views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Arrived at opening for a beautiful quiet tour. Had tea in the tea house, good way to spend a couple hours on a nice day. Hard to believe it's in the center of the city, it was very calm and quiet inside.
