As many times as we visit the garden, We have no will to leave it. Everything is beautiful and idilic. Just a contrast with roaring Flatbush Avenue & Eastern Parkway next to it.

The Bonsai trees are not to miss; many are over 100 years old and fascinating to see. Kids will love them! Walking through the garden is calming and beautiful.
