Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a beautiful little Asian garden that was gifted to Norfolk by Taiwan. Asian foliage surrounds a pond and a short walking path. The restaurant was closed, but its pagoda inspired architecture is beautiful. It will just take a few minutes to walk through and it's worth a look.

Beautiful landscape. Online it says it is a restaurant, but door was locked and it looked inside in disrepair. Outside garden area and building beautiful.

The Pagoda was in a surprising area with a plaque explaining that it was to commemorate Norfolk’s link with Taiwan. The garden is beautiful with a large pond. It is slightly off the beaten path.

We found this on our walk on the Elizabeth River Trail. Very peaceful, the mermaid was a great prop for pictures, and we observed some lovely photo shoots.

This was a relaxing stop located in Norfolk. We had some time to kill and decided to stop by and it did not disappoint. We went in January so there wasn't any flowers in bloom like I'm sure there is in summer but it was still a beautiful stop.

If you take the time to walk in the peaceful atmosphere of the garden, you may come across a placard detailing how the Pagoda was a gift to the City of Norfolk from the nation of Taiwan in 1986 in the Spirit of Peace.

This is a wonderful place to sit and relax in the warmer months, read a book, or yoga.

...the 1950's moniker "oriental?"

It was an ignorant shorthand for different countries, each with their own culture.

It was a relaxing place to stop during my walk in Norfolk. I didn't go inside the building, but walking around it, taking in the sounds of the water and views of the plants/flowers was quite peaceful. It is free so take some time and enjoy!

This is a free park open to the public. There is a nice little walkway around. There are some statues, lots of trees and flowers and a koi pond. It is located next to the USS Wisconsin. Easy to walk to.
