Lovely to stroll through the tranquil and serene gardens. Lots of things to discover as you move around the different plantings. A great place to just sit and think.

Dog are permitted within the Japanese Garden, but must be on a leash at all times. The dog owner is also required by using an appropriate scoop and bag to remove any droppings. :)
