This is a small, but beautiful, Japanese garden in a residential area. It was designed in the early 40's. Very well maintained, limited parking, and limited days of the month which it is opened. A very enjoyable morning stroll.

No, I believe they are open the second and last Sunday of each month and Wednesday and Friday's. You might want to call in case they change their days.
