Family Date Night Idea: Shakespeare in the Park & The Shinzen Japanese Gardens

We recently checked off two fun “Fresno Bucket List” experiences since moving here last August.  I love to find unique and interesting family date night ideas that don’t cost a fortune, and this was a great one! I’m sharing some images from our evening at Woodward Park and maybe someday if you’re ever here, it’s worth a stop! I had no idea we lived right next to something this lovely.

The Shinzen Japanese Gardens is gorgeous. I can’t wait to visit again in Fall and Spring to see the leaves and blossoms change. The kids especially enjoyed the peacock family.

After walking around the gardens we had a picnic and enjoyed some free Shakespeare in the Park!
