  • Really beautiful place in the valley! It’s a little hidden gem, and with an entrance fee of only $5 it’s a great place for a date or for the family. It takes an about 1.5-2 hours to walk through. There are fish, birds and lots of trees and beautiful plants. Be careful to bring water and a hat in the summer. It can get very hot!
  • Definitely a place to visit it is really beautiful, peaceful and has lots of scenery for great pictures. Entrance is very cheap only $5 DOLLARS parking is free. There are rules against straying of the path and changing of props a d clothing in the building
  • It's a beautiful place to take pictures at. The Garden is kept very clean. Not many visitors when I went in. There's parking available inside. Admission fee is reasonable. Tripods are not allowed inside. There's other rules you can read before you go inside the garden.
  • It's a quaint Japanese garden. There's a lot of beautiful views and some informative locations in the garden. There's an older Japanese house made for some of the higher-ups of society at it's time where they have a TV guiding a visitor through some of the Japanese customs as well as a tower that has another video playing about the Donald C. Tilman Water Reclamation facility next door. For the minimal cost it takes for entry, it's well worth the money. One extra tidbit: It smells very sweet in certain areas.
  • Beautiful and well kept. Very peaceful garden. I didn't attend the guided tour because I went for leisure with my babes. It made our list as one of our go-to spots for a romantic walk.
