  • Piece of heaven, a genius blend of plants, trees and water. This area provides solidarity if desired but the welcoming chairs and benches throughout is also a perfect place to have a conversation with someone. The fact that it is located next a busy intense campus is adds to the appeal. It’s a great environment to just pause, regroup and refocus. I am so happy that happened to learn about this area. I can’t wait to revisit. A must see for those at UCLA or visitors.
  • Very very beautiful. Nice place to go and meditate or work out. It is very hilly so you get a good leg work out from walking around it's very peaceful there little streams and ponds with turtles and large koi fish inhabiting them. Just a nice place to get away for a moment or have a picnic lunch with friends or family.
