I am a great fan of bonsais. I love them. The Shinzen Friendship Garden is an excellent example of the beauty of Japanese gardening. It portrays the intricate, meticulously kept, quiet, unspoken excellence of the Japanese culture. I was amazed at the relaxing peaceful beauty of this place. So clean and serene. I took my grand daughter here and we really enjoyed it. Took a stroll around on the path provided, sat awhile and gazed at the water, the magnificent pheasants and the beauty of the moment. Spectacular. $5 for adults, $1 children and not much more for the entire family. Well worth it.
There is a special quality to a Japanese Garden that evokes calmness and contemplation, especially when it is appropriately maintained. The Shinzen is one such. It invites strolling, admiring koi, soaking in the various species of plant life and calmly sitting and being in the moment. The Clark Bonsai exhibit is an additional jewel that greatly adds to the overall experience. You can feel the love that goes into the care and upkeep of the grounds. That may be why it is a popular location for weddings!
