Dedicated in April 1981, the garden was built through the generosity of Mrs. Loraine Miller Collins. The contribution was made in memory of her late husband, Earl Burns Miller, for whom the 1.3 acre plot is named. Following three years of planning, in cooperation with California State University Long Beach, Mrs. Collins selected Long Beach landscape architect Edward R. Lovell to design the garden. In preparation for the project, Mr. Lovell visited similar gardens in Japan and in the United States.The resulting garden reflects the university's continuing interest in international education, and the university community is delighted to have you share in this educational, cultural, and aesthetic resource.
“representing the generosity of community”
Bring quarters for the koi food dispenser and feed the koi right from your hand! Picture perfect area it's on a college campus so that threw us off.
Beautiful little spot to stop by. Nice and serene. Pay parking across the road from the facility, make sure you pay or campus police will ticket you.
