Hayward Japanese Gardens: oasis with delights for kids, too

Hayward Japanese Gardens: oasis with delights for kids, too | Contemplative Garden | Scoop.it
Designed by master gardener Kimio Kimura, the 3.5-acre plot is filled with imaginatively shaped trees, shrubs and granite boulders, providing a getaway from urban life. A sign informs you about a free lecture and tour by designer Kimura given the first Saturday of every month at 1 p.m. Stroll along the curving paths to enjoy the landscaping. There are more than 70 plant types: mondo grasses, Japanese black pine, incense cedar and junipers, as well as colorful flowering plants like rhododendron. The time capsuleTo visit the time capsule after you leave the gardens, walk past the senior center, over the little bridge that crosses the creek and through the Creekwood apartment complex. Two popular ones close to the time capsule are the Chinese restaurant Sunflower 2 (1213-A St. at Second Street) and the Indian restaurant Favorite Indian (1235-A St. between Second and Third streets). By public transportation, from the Hayward BART Station take AC Transit's No. 32 (counterclockwise) to Second and B streets or AC Transit's No. 95 to the Fairview district, exiting at C Street and Foothill Boulevard; both stops are a short walk from the gardens.
