Wonderful gardens and ponds and ever changing. I would go back many times if possible. High tea just adds to charm of the gardens and gives one a place to take a break while enjoying the latest the gardens has to offer.

Private gardens donated to the city and improved quite a bit over time. Japanese garden, NW pants, water-wise. Great place to enjoy, learn & relax. The light show (Thanksgiving to Christmas) is a must. No fees to visit.
