This is a beautiful, serene spot. We had not planned to spend much time there but I can imagine going there to read, meditate, etc. Beautiful from any angle and in any season.

A quaint experience. I recommend buying some food and feeding the coy and turtles. Relaxing and takes about an hour.. A fun day time date experience.
