I visited when closed, there looks to be a peaceful pond (with fountain) in the internal courtyard. Theres a human sundial at entrance and a walking path with plant IDs around the buildkng. Theres a fairly barren hilly area behind it, with shaded tables, that could be good for a dog walk and leg stretch.

Theres a public park immediately across the street with bathrooms and grass. Immediately off of a well traveled road.
