In the 1980s, Sik Sik Yuen applied to the government for the construction of a garden promenade in the auspicious rear land of the temple, covering an area of 5,580 square meters. The garden was originally planned to imitate the "Beijing Summer Palace", but due to topographical problems, it was later changed to a high and low nine-curve path that runs from east to west to reach the Nine Dragons Wall.
The project officially started in 1988 and completed to open in 1991 to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Sik Sik Yuen. There is a long and winding corridor, a small bridge, a waterfall, and an artificial lake, and a variety of pavilions, including a square pavilion, a round pavilion, a hexagonal pavilion, and a fan pavilion, etc. creating a beautiful environment.
The name "Good Wish Garden" is derived from "do whatever by heart at seventy years old" from the Analects of Confucius, which also means that all visitors to the garden can follow their heart. In 1996, a group of sculptures of "White Jade Sculpture of a Flock of Immortal Sheep", which was presented by the Lanxi Government, was placed in the garden and became one of the attractions of the garden.
