A wonderful place to place to walk for a few minutes or a few hours. There are many paths to choose from. Excellent views of the ocean in both directions from this hill on a peninsula. The plant life and variety of trees is extraordinary.

Definitely not the fancy arboretum of North American standards, but a wonderful example of one man's vision. Quiet, comfortably walkable, and even marked with QR codes on the various plant and tree specimens. Plus, there is no admission charge!
