A nice short day trip

This is a lovely day trip up the highway. There are fabulous roses and beautifully designed gardens. A very enjoyable day out.

The gardens are nice but I have been to Japan and there is so much more that could be done here to harness that feel. I enjoyed it and the one visit I had there seemed to be enough.

if you had never been to japan then this place would be amazing, but its not quite the same as visiting a real japanese garden. its pretty nice though and very quiet. only bad thing is the people who have to gong the big bell every 4 minutes, give it a break people.

Having visited Japan I was amazed at the Japanese Gardens in Lethbridge. Upon entering the gardens you really lose the sense of Lethbridge and feel transported to Japan. The attention to detail is incredible with tinkling water features, raked pebble gardens, uniquely trimmed trees and shrubs and even a building featuring typical Japanese construction techniques. Hosts dressed in Kimonos are... More

This garden is authentic in every respect, to the type of garden you would expect to see, if you were in Japan. It was constructed by a "Master" in Japan who focused on every detail of the garden to... More
