Spent a very relaxing hour wandering around the gardens, strolling along the paths, thru all the shaded trees and bamboo, taking in the ponds, and watching the lizards basking on the sunny afternoon.

The gardens are convenient but seem to always be quiet and peaceful. lovely place for a relaxing sojourn from the hectic parts of daily life. Our grandchildren love walking around the gardens and always seem to find lizards, birds and other things to discover.
