The grounds are small but nicely maintained. Guided tours are available but feel free to roam at your leisure. Tai-chi lessons are offered in the morning.

Love going here when I walk downtown. I'm a member so am there often and meet friends there. Usually I stop by the tea shop and spend a leisurely time visiting friends and enjoying the great tea.
