Built in conjunction with our sister city, this is a true Japanese garden. Directly behind City Hall and a few steps from the waterfront walkway it should be checked out. Sit down watch the Koi and enjoy some serenity

Went here with a photographer friend to take some pictures for modern samurai society.com. Considering the name, I felt some of the garden features would have an oriental feel to them. There are some excellent places here for all kinds of photography opportunities. Saw a few couples taking a leisurely stroll as well. I will be back with my significant... More

This is a great little spot to chill out in the middle of downtown. Good for a walk, a meditation or to take the kids. Peaceful and well laid out. I love this spot..,

Great spot to go for quiet reflection when by yourself, romantic walk with your sweetheart, stop & have a snack/lunch on one of the benches and also a great spot to take some awesome photos - whether for a wedding, grad or just for fun. Make it a short stop when going for lunch or heading to the Rotary Ctr... More

This is a rare place of peace and tranquility. You can just wonder around the perfectly maintained garden or sit on a bench and maybe have lunch it certainly puts you in a better frame of mind.

A tiny, yet large amount of beauty and information to learn. It is so pretty in there with the path to walk on and the koi fish to see. It is peaceful. A Wow!

I often took my Elementary School classes here as most of them didn't even know it existed. They enjoyed their time watching the Koi and having a peaceful lunch.

I recently went there with a friend who had never seen the gardens. I being an avid photographer just loved the water scenes and the different shrubs and trees which were of a japanese theme. We decided on a boxed lunch and were able on arrival to find a really nice bench in which to eat at. The peaceful atmosphere... More
