I have visited a number of Japanese gardens and this one is not large but well executed. The traffic noise does detract slightly but a nice stroll and relax, lots of carp in the pond will keep kids interested.

We took an Uber out to the arboretum and then walked from there to the Japanese Garden. It's very peaceful and lovely, and makes for a lovely break from downtown.
