Went to check out the Chinese Gardens today. The gardens were built in 1975 by a Taiwanese architect. They are based on the concept of Chinese garden art, which integrates architectural features with the natural landscape. The garden has several pagodas, numerous bridges, a Bonsai garden, ponds and streams, statues of traditional Chinese heroes, and a turtle and tortoise museum. The gardens are free but the museum is not. Most of the bridges and statues are carved from gorgeous white marble. The gardens are very pretty and would probably be best visited in the evening when it's not quite so hot.
