When: Friday, June 15, 2012. Meet at 10:30 AM (sharp!)
Where: Meet at the covered entry pavilion. Plenty of free and handicapped parking near-by. Wear sensible shoes and bring sunscreen.
What: Tour of newly-restored Japanese Garden. Each group of ten will have their own docent. Maximum 40 guests.
Cost: $25, which includes entry fee. One can remain at the Huntington the whole day and see whatever else interests you. Seeing the Japanese Garden will probably take 1 to 1-1/2 hrs.
Plus: Around noon we will have lunch at either the Cafe: approximately $10 (or less) for sandwiches, soups, chili and salads or at the Chinese Garden Cafe: approximately $15; it offers 4 hot Chinese entrees and dim sum. It’s next to the lake in the Chinese Garden and our tour begins and ends at the gate of the Chinese Garden, so we will be there when we finish with the Japanese Garden.
Options: Cactus Garden, Chinese Garden, Rose Garden, Shakespeare Garden, decorative arts and paintings in the Main House, exhibit Visions of Empire on building America’s railroads, or look at lovely Chinese bronze mirrors.
Free: Wheelchairs (but you must be paired with a pusher).
