Beautiful gardens. I take visitors here every chance I get. Free entry. The guard even opened up for me on a monday because I had out of state visitors. Vistas are breathtaking. gardens are immaculate and Koi pond is gorgeous. Worth more than one visit.

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. 😉
