Is not what I expected, the place is totally lack of maintenance and as a Chinese garden to might expect a relaxing place but isn't.

Basic garden, needs a lot of maintenance. There is a Chinese walkway and a pagoda. Minimal entrance fee.

This review is quite late. I have been to the Chinese Garden a number of times since I was a kid, Lately, I notice that this place has deteriorated through the years.Perhaps, some serious maintenance is required.
