This garden, though small compared to Portland's Japanese garden, is a gem. It's a place you can sit in quiet contemplation or roam to view the pond and the plantings from different aspects.

The smells, the calm and the beautifully manicured gardens are a very nice place to walk in when the sun is shining.
