Ever since the Pokémon go takeover I always avoid the pagoda. This was a not miss on walks with the wife but now we just avoid it since the Pokémon takeover. Hopefully when the new restaurant opens it will return to being a nice place to visithe again.
What an amazing place. This Pagoda is unique and the surrounding gardens are beautiful and peaceful. There's also a donation-based yoga class here every Wed night at 6:30 pm.
