Discover the beauty of Knowing the Spring Courtyard and the secluded tranquility of Pine and Plum Pavilion, the first structures in the largest Sichuan-style garden outside China. Built by master artisans from China, they feature all the essential elements of stone, water, and plants native to China – to be appreciated in every season. When complete, the five-acre ridge-top garden will showcase numerous pavilions intermingled with lotus ponds, a rushing stream, and groves of pine, maple, and bamboo. Come explore our vision for the harmonious integration of nature, traditional architecture, and culture.

Admission is FREE to everyone, but we grateful for donations, which support programs and help the Garden grow.
