9,50$ per person
Nice Japanese garden, well landscaped and maintained. Some maples are absolutely beautiful. It is to photograph a particular tree (see the first photo below) that we wanted to visit this garden. A building houses a fine collection of bonzais.
Access : from highway 405, take exit 2B to West Burnside. Drive west on West Burnside for 1,2 miles. Then turn left on SW Tichner Drive.
