The Chinese Cultural Center of America built the beautiful Asian Garden located in the Jim Muto Recreation area. This specifically designed garden includes a Chinese pagoda, a large pond, landscaped gardens, handcrafted lights and many granite sculptures. The water for the pond comes from the Botanical Center; the large pumping system is maintained by the Parks and Recreation department. Visit the Chinese Cultural Center of America for more information.
