Low key, old fashion way to spend a couple of hours, strolling around these lovely gardens. There is no charge and a donation would likely be welcome. Located in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Palo Alto, easy parking.

Hi, I have doctor appointment in Stanford on Friday and plan to visit your garden after. My questions are: Is it handicapped accessible? Or is it easy to walk around if you are limping? How about parking? Is there a restaurant/cafe onsite for light snack/coffee? How much is entrance fee? Thank you
