Located in the heart of Chinatown, this home garden offers serenity, history and great chi. Modeled after private gardens in the city of Suzhou, China, the Garden embodies the Taoist philosophy of yin and yang, where every element-light, texture, vegetation - is balanced and symbolic.
A neat spot to check out There are 2 parks here, one free and one that is paid admission, all rocks and vegetation imported from China. A cool spot that is close by and a quick 15 min visit will usually do.
