This authentic Japanese Garden was commissioned by Japan as a gift to the City of Lethbridge on the centennial of Canada. 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

This was a great place to visit this year. For a very reasonable fee we were able to wander around the gardens at a very peaceful pace. The attractions are great and a great deal of care is taken to keep the place perfect. Tranquility at it's best.

It feels good to walk on- it should at the outrageous cost of putting it in. If you want a quiet... More

If you are looking for the perfect place to stroll, walk, or jog try the lake area that is behind the Japanese Gardens near downtown Lethbridge. It is a peacful, beautiful area that makes you believe you have left the city. Also the Japanese Gardens are beautiful -- for a small fee that helps support the garden and all who... More
