Once inside the garden we found it beautiful and authentic. The numbers of homeless crowding the walkway on the walk there were disconcerting. No one was overtly aggressive but it was a gauntlet to walk through. Knowing this I would go again but take a...More

This garden is a treasure - pure and simple! We joined a few months ago and attended a few events including an evening concert in August 18. Food at the little restaurant is "ok" thought most items aren't our "cup of tea" (pun intended). Art...More

Compact, but arranged to appear much larger, this is a great place to wander around, have a cup of tea, take your kids, or even meditate. As an added bonus, they also have great music events in the warmer months.
