  • I noticed this pleasant garden on one of my walks around the Lake. It's a very pleasant addition to the other landscaping.

  • Who knows when the garden is open? It was a super sketchy area of the lake, lots of homeless, and when we got there even though it said open, the gardens were definitely closed.

  • Amazing experience to see all the cool bonsai! Be mindful of the hours it's open though, I provided a picture of their most current operating hours 👍
  • We absolutely loved this place. It is a wonderful place. Do visit if you stay around in bay area. They have some really good collections of plants. The hosts on the property are very friendly, they answered all the questions we had and also showed us their archives. They usually rotate the plants on display. So If you get talking to hosts and they are free you may get a chance to see their archives.
