This is just a lovely place to go and relax. It's along a section of Canada road which is closed to traffic on Sundays during much of the year. It's very tranquil and a great place to let the world's worries slip from your mind, if even for a few brief minutes.

A short walk into a serene garden area that relates the story of water which travels 162 miles to quench San Francisco from the mountain tops. Lovely reflective pool surrounded by cypress trees

Unique place to take out-of-town visitors. Also can be rented for a wedding venue. check the hours, though, before you 'drop by'...hours are limited.
