San Mateo Central Park - Japanese Gardens

Location Information

50 E 5th Ave
San Mateo, CA 94401

The Japanese Tea Garden was designed by Nagao Sakurai and was installed in 1966. Plants featured in the garden include cherry trees, Japanese maples and bonsai. San Mateo set up a sister-city relationship with Toyonaka in 1963 and Toyonaka has donated several sculptures which can be seen in the Tea Garden, including the five-level stone pagoda statue (installed 1963) and a small shinden shrine (in 1991, for the Tea Garden's 25th anniversary). In addition, the Japanese Tea Garden structures include the surrounding fence, a traditional gazebo (azumaya), and a teahouse (chashitsu).

It is open from 10AM to 4PM on weekdays and 11AM to 4PM on weekends. The Tea Garden water features include a waterfall and pond with two bridges; visitors may feed the pond's koi from the main bridge at 11AM and 3PM daily in the spring and summer.     - wikipedia
