I've been to the Japanese Stroll Garden a few times, and it is one of the most beautiful and peaceful places on Long Island. It's so green, lush and tranquil. I can't express in words the feeling you get when you are there. It's a little slice of heaven on earth.

Superb hidden gem. A traditional Japanese garden and tea house with plantings along the trails up the surrounding hills and down to the koi pond. If you are lucky a tea ceremony or traditional Japanese music will be in process.

The surprisingly hilly trail twists thru local and exotic plants by a tea house and makes you wish it were ten times the size. Be prepared to walk uneven ground, guides are available and recently advised it might be in danger of closing.

We visited in the rain - and it was especially wonderful. Almost on a par with the Asticou Azalea Garden in Seal Harbor, though more authentically japanese. One of the neglected treasures of Long Island - I hope rumors it might shut through lack of funding are unfounded - though it's too nice ever to be popular.

Due to lack of funding the garden's tentative closing date will be in a couple of months (October). If you have the opportunity to go, GO. It is a 5 acre estate created by an Humes, an ambassador who landscaped the land to mimic a Japanese garden. The terrain tends to be hilly and is not wheelchair accessible. Cost of... More

The lush greenery of the garden ranging up the surprisingly hilly terrain is a perfect setting for this oriental garden. The pavilion and koi ponds blend with the gardens to make you breath deeper and let your spirit relax.
