We attended a gorgeouis wedding at this location. Not huge, but very well planned environment, lovely gardens, and easy parking. This is a special, peaceful place if you meditate or practice Taii Chi.

Located on the west side of the Long Beach State University a beautiful garden with water features, plants and Koi. Parking can be problematic depending on number visitors, It is used a lot for wedding pictures.

Very disappointed to go all the way there to find it closed. $50 wasted in cabs. Perhaps if the website had told me it was closed today it would have helped. Stating the hours "may be affected"really doesn't cut it.

We did not see any cherry blossom trees; however, this is not the time for them to be blooming so there may be some that we did not notice. Unfortunately, things were not well-marked.
