Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden
The designers of this beautiful meditative garden made great use of a relatively small, 1.3-acre bit of Eden on the western end of the Cal State Long Beach campus. You can sit for a while alone with your thoughts and a pond full of koi and feel your worries disappear into the lush landscaping. And the Japanese Garden is not only great for introspection and serenity, it’s also a popular spot for weddings and small social gatherings. And kids love to feed the fish.
