It is a $5 entrance fee. Beautiful landscape. However, the smell of the water in the pond is not good.

This is a nice place to come to if you want to see Japanese gardens look without going to Japan . The scenery is beautiful and it is very peaceful. It's also free to enter

I love this garden, it was right near my dorm when I lived at the great Long Beach State. Go Beach! The setting is peaceful and the Bonsai are wonderful to look at. Don't miss the Koi auction, it is very exciting.
