Probably the most beautiful part of Woodward Park. Entry fee of $5 is a little steep, but discounted to $1 for students and seniors. Very neat to see how the garden changes throughout the seasons.

It is very beautiful but the ladies upfront that handle the money are very very rude. We accidentally gave one of them extra money and ignored us when we asked to have it back. We were also clearly students but unfortunatley didn't have our school IDs eoth us and had to pay the adult price.

I took my mother here on a Saturday afternoon. It is tucked away and separate from the rest of Woodward Park which really allows you to appreciate the garden. The garden is well laid out and with each season, allows the garden to change slightly. If you appreciate landscape and garden design, this is a nice retreat.
