If you're visiting in the Lethbridge area, this spot is a must. It is a piece of calm in our hectic daily lives. Beautifully landscaped and manicured. Peaceful babbling brooks flowing around, through, and under; bridges and pathways. Water fowl frolick in the well designed ponds and waterfalls. Specially selected rocks are laid out to complement the natural surroundings. A... More

This is a must if you're visiting Lethbridge. It's a beautiful garden in the city, adjacent to nearby Henderson Lake - very easy to find. We went on a tour and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly (but not Japanese). If I were to go again and had time, I would take a book and spend the day... More

A must see if you are in the area. Stroll and forget the outside world here. Blissful. Drumming circles take place if you are interested. Great place to relax and unwind. A peaceful calm exists here

The gardens are exquisite in every detail. They are well kept, all of the plants trimmed perfectly, water flowing in and out of the landscaping, bridges, stepping stones. Overlooks Jefferson Park. Attendants take your picture for you, which is nice. It is a grand place to relax because it is quiet and you can spend as much time there as... More

Perhaps the entrance fee could be lowered. However maintaining this garden, ensuring the plant and building maintenance is done correctly and given the fickle Canadian climate I'm tickled this garden has matured so weli over the years. I saw it open as a child visiting my Gram. Each year we enjoyed our visits until I became too "old" to visit... More

beautiful gardens. even though the entrance fee could have been cheaper. I would say its worth going only once and maybe every once in a while.

The word 'Gardens' may be misleading since we Westerners expect flowers in a garden! Nevertheless the variety and configuration of trees & water features make up for it & evoke a peaceful feeling. Love the sound of the gong/bell! The Japanese tea house is authentic and hosts activities for all ages at different times. For the fullest experience check the... More

Its staff members are very friendly. I believe most of their staff members understand Japanese. The trees in the garden were being taken care of well when I visited the garden. It is a quiet and relaxing place. I like its atmosphere a lot. The lake behind the garden is also beautiful. They say "Shakkei( A Borrowed Scenery)". We can... More
