Visited the Japanese Gardens with my family recently and was disappointed with the lack of maintenance and upkeep. I had good memories of visiting the Japanese Gardens many many years back. Used to be a popular stop over for after wedding photography.Not any more.

Nice basic gardens. No shops on site. Lots of activity during festive periods with families. Not missing too much if you skip this on your agenda.

My team and I decided to go the the Japanese Gardens for a team braai. It is a beautiful spot with a lovely little ponds. Great for a stroll and to get out when the weather is good. Worth a visit!

Nice gardens for a walk or a picnic. There are secluded spots or areas overlooking the pond. The gardens are quite clean and there is a security guard that walks around. Entrance is free which is a bonus

Peaceful,clean, quiet, free entrance, ideal for picnics, but more like a big park, I suppose its because we expected koi ponds, miniature gardens, maybe a tearoom,lots of quaint buildings, maybe gazebos,stepping stones, zen gardens.
