Having visited Chinese gardens in Vancouver and New York as well as in China, I thought I might be underwhelmed by this someway small (just a city block in size) garden. I was completely wrong. This is a compact yet expansive garden that is well...More

Such care was taken while building this garden. The rock is pretty, the structures are awesome. There are paper art exhibits on display. Very nice garden in the middle of the city.

We went for a family wedding, and as locals, had not ever been. Shame on us. This is one of the most beautifully kept, tranquil locations. Even if you aren't getting hitched, its a stunning place to tour!
