Nice place to be quiet and listen to the waves. There are many benches to chose from. The garden is beautiful : the fish pond, the flowers.

As a "local" I hesitate to advertise the existence of such a wonderful and peaceful place like this for fear it will be overrun by travelers, but it is a place which everyone should be allowed to enjoy. Be aware this is not a park...More

These gardens are a treasure. If only visitors would realize the beauty and sacredness is disturbed when people speak loudly or worse, talk on cell phones. This is NOT the place to conduct business or have lengthy conversations . It IS a place for contemplation...More

Beautiful gardens with stunning ocean views. The gardens have koi ponds and babbling streams, lots of shaded spaces, and a wonderful way to decompress.

Not sure about the hours. But we went there around 10am and I know they close at 5pm. It's right off 101/coast highway. Beside Swamis beach. Just key in the address in your gps and it will take you there. 😉

Yes, I have seen many children on the grounds over the years. Please be aware that it is a place at which people are asked to be quiet. So no crying, running, screaming .... people want to meditate.
