    It’s a cool place to walk and have a taste of Japan. It’s a very easy walk, they have shuttles to the top

    Not worth the hefty price if admission

    Beautiful and relaxing. We visited in late March and there were many places to sit and reflect.

    $15 admission. Recommend the guided tour, and sometimes they have interesting events, like tea ceremony showcase.

    Free with Bank of America on first weekend of the month. Lovely gardens but overcrowded with tourists and pretty overrated tbh.

    Excellent Japanese garden. They've recently renovated and added a new courtyard and teahouse that are supposed to be beautiful - haven't visited since the updates.

    Be sure to visit the rose garden in the way out. It's right across the street.

    Beautiful place. Go when it's warm to see the pretty trees. Even when it was cold, it was still great. Loved walking around and taking pictures.

    Beautiful, relaxing space; bring a book and a camera. Parts of the garden are under construction but still worth visiting. Parking is not free (as I read in another comment), also $10 admission.

    BEAUTIFUL garden here. Under construction at the moment until Spring 2017 but 80% of the park is still open to roam! Visit during the fall for colorful foliage.

    Great place to walk for a quiet and serene place. Took an uber and packed lunch. Had a picnic outside the gardens. Take in the tall trees!

    VERY rude, power-tripping staff turned a relaxing afternoon into a miserable experience!!! Left me and our 1 year old in tears. Couldn't pay me enough to go back to this over-rated tourist trap!

    Not really worth the money unless you are super into Japanese gardens. See the Rose Garden for free!
