Walked through on the way to Japanese Garden. So clean, well kept. Dogs were on leash. People were courteous. Lots of joggers. Would love to explore more!

Arrive here on the Trolley tour. Some fantastic views for photo opportunities. A nice rose garden, and a lovely place to spend a couple of hours.
