Fresno Valentine Run

Sun February 10, 2019 Fresno, CA US 93730 Directions

Tour what is possibly the most romantic place in Fresno.

The Shinzen Friendship Garden will open its side gate for our participants to tour the garden after the run.  Admission is free, donations to the garden are accepted.

Come tour the peace and beauty of Shinzen and the Clark Bonsai Collection. With landscape views at every turn of the path, your stroll along the walkways is a pleasant and rewarding experience. Discovering the art of bonsai through the notable Clark Bonsai Collection and the sculptures created is a gift to your senses.

Shinzen is a place for exploration, learning, reflection, serenity and renewal. During your visit, please be respectful of the grounds and of other visitors who are enjoying the beauty and peacefulness of the Garden.
