Cal State Long Beach’s Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden reopens to the public Tuesday after closing for over a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The garden is a local favorite and offers a tranquil Zen Garden, winding walkways and koi ponds. The garden features seasonal plants that bloom in a variety of colors.

While the school no longer charges admission fees for the public to visit, visitors must make a reservation on the school’s garden app or through its online portal. Those using the online portal must first create and register an account on the garden’s website before securing a reservation.

Private reservations cannot be accommodated at this time, the garden’s administration office said, though more information will be provided on the garden’s website.

Visitors can feed the koi fish and there are other activities at the garden, which can be seen on the garden’s calendar.

The new garden hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

You can download the garden app for reservations and event schedules at the Google Play Store for Android users or the Apple App Store for iPhone users.
