  • Last year, I visited in the middle of October for the first time in a long time. There were a lot of people on Sunday, so it was hard to park in a temporary parking lot nearby. It would be best to be able to go on weekdays or at times when there are few people.

  • Guess it all depends on the time of the year. Being September and not time yet for the autumn leaves, there was not really much but a hint of something great to come. Otherwise it is just a pond?  more »

  • This is my second visit and the scenery is very different depending on the season. Right now, the autumn colours and reflections are breathtaking.
  • Fantastic autumn leaves surrounds this beautiful pond. Great for pictures and has a cozy cafe.
