JGarden Description:This 1.3 acre garden managed by CSU, Long Beach, was built through the generosity of Mrs. Loraine Miller Collins in memory of her late husband, Earl Burns Miller. After three years of planning, Mrs. Collins selected a local landscape architect, Edward Lovell to design the garden. It was dedicated in April 1981.

Annual events include: a Bonsai exhibit in February, Girl's day, Boys day, Orchid and Ikebana classes, Origami and Chrysanthemum festivals, and a Koi auction.

The garden is available for tours, outdoor classroom drawing and painting, photography, recreation, weddings, receptions and photo sessions.

The leaves of the trees are falling.
In the house one cannot hear anything--
Both nights when showers fall
And nights when showers do not fall.
