Lovely gardens. Not overly large, but also don’t charge an insane amount. I really love and appreciate that the offer a family admission price for $28! Also, nearby is a great Moroccan restaurant, the Kasbah. A great treat after garden hopping all day.

There are group tours with a tour guide, or you can just walk around and read the written information on the wall or with a tour pamphlet. My friends had lived in China, and were thrilled with the garden.

One of my favorite places to drop in for a zen moment. Beautiful, relaxing design. Fragrant with gardenia in the spring. Ponds full of koi and water lilies. One block from the Old Chinatown stop on the Max.
