Reservations (good for up to 6 people)

Reservations are free, and they are required prior to visiting to ensure we are not closed for a private event or class at the time you wish to visit. Each reservation is good for up to 6 people

Feeding the Koi fish is also free, and it is a separate reservation from a regular visit, as we limit the amount of food the Koi get each day. We recommend making your “Feed the Koi Fish” reservation 1-2 weeks in advance. The spots book up fast!

Groups of 12 or more are required to:

If you’re a visiting group of 12 people or more, please email JGcoordinators@csulb.edu at least 7 days in advance to obtain approval for your visit. Large groups who do not complete this step may be turned away at the gate.

Please see our Community Group Visits page for more information about field trips, camp visits, social club visits and more.

All groups of 40 people or more are subject to a $1 per person visitation fee.
