Not an overly big place but big enough to slowly stroll around and take in the peace and well manicured gardens with water flowing into ponds through bamboo fountains, statues, seating areas for photography or art opportunities. Well worth a look and free to enter.

If you've got a few minutes to spare, this is a very pretty attraction, especially if you like structured, orderly Japanse gardens

Great little garden despite its size, it had a big impact! It is somewhat hidden but it’s worth the walk!

Rather difficult to find! The gardens are small, but very peaceful. An unusual oasis in the middle of the city. A peaceful place to read a book in another little world.

I love sitting in this garden and listening to the sounds of birds, water and just the ambience of my surroundings. Each part of the garden is a delight. Free entry and parking is usually easy out front.

One of my favorite places in the city. It is so quiet and peaceful! It is the perfect place to sit and read or just to sit and absorb the peace of nature.

No, it is a quiet, “hidden secret” sort of place, I have never seen a lot of people there, but it is a lovely escape from the bustling city

No food or drink available here. The garden is small and serene, perfect for relaxation and contemplation.

Fair bit of parking just on the street. It is at one end of South Terrace and near a hospital so it is a bit hit and miss. I don't think there is any cost involved in parking there.
