The Hannah Carter Japanese Garden is located one mile from the UCLA campus in Bel-Air. The authentic Japanese garden was inspired by the gardens of Kyoto. Many structures in the garden - main gate, garden houses, bridges, and family shrine - were built in Japan and reassembled here. Antique stone carvings, water basins, lanterns, a five-tiered pagoda, and key symbolic rocks are also from Japan. The garden was donated to UCLA in 1965 and is used by faculty, students, school and community groups and others seeking a serene setting for meditation and solitude.
Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden is one of the most distinguished outdoor sculpture collections in the country. Featuring more than 70 twentieth-century works, the five-acre garden brings together figural and abstract works of a wide range of notable artists, including Matisse and Rodin. The garden is open year-round and is located at the north end of the UCLA campus, between Bunche Hall and the Dickson Art Center.
Robert Graham Sculpture Garden, located in Rolfe Hallís outdoor courtyard, features 11 works in bronze by this internationally renowned Los Angeles-based sculptor.
