This place is a little version of Filoli garden tucked away in the residential area of Menlo Park. Not a lot of people know about it unless you live close by. Have a lot of art and artsy collection. Great place to relax and stroll...More

Very nice garden with small fountain and a cafe. The main purpose of this place seems to be those art shops selling local artists' work. Nice to take a look, but overpriced in my opinion. Recommended for visiting, not recommended for shopping.
