    Surprising section of Lake Merritt
    We fell upon this garden when walking thru the garden section of Lake Merritt. Had no idea what Bonzai gardening really was until we walked thru this well-maintained fenced off garden. It is well worth the visit

    Very interesting
    The location was hard to find but this cute little garden has many bonsai to view. The volunteer working the day we went was very helpful and enthusiastic when answering our questions.
