This is a very nice small park. It is easy to stroll through it in a few minutes. There is another park across the street, as well as the Children's Zoo. Convenient location.

Ay their web page says that the garden is redisgned for every station of the year, but we found nothing and a little snow. It is not really something to visit every time of the year.

Wonderful variety of beautiful flowers. Every year volunteers help plant the annual flowers. Many couples get married here because of the nice setting.

Sunken Garden is located near a very busy & noisy intersection but because of its lower elevation with respect to the streets, it is noticeably quieter... Not quiet enough to spend an extended amount of time reading a book and/or relaxing, but definitely a good...More

The end of May is just fine. The gardens are planted so that there are different plants blooming all season. It's really lovely at night too.
