A nice and tranquil break from our drive. Equally educational and inspirational to see a Japanese-style garden and its attention to details in the landscape- from the dry rock garden to the waterfall and stream, to the pavilion and pagoda, to the the way the trees are pruned and how rocks are placed "sitting" on the ground. A real aesthetic... More

This was an unexpected pleasure as we were driving from Drumheller to Montana. We spent the night in Lethbridge and went first thing in the morning to the garden. There is a authentic tea house with some Japanese artists on exhibit. While we were there, a yoga class was in session on the porch of the tea house. If I... More

This is a nice stress-free place to take a break from the road. A lot of folks coming up from the U.S. or heading south that way will love this place. Here's what you should know... Nikka Yuko is a traditional Japanese Garden. Flowers or roses won't be seen here because every aspect of this garden is geared towards all... More

A wonderful garden. It takes about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes to see the garden and house. The staff are excellent - informative and friendly. They'll give you a 50% discount voucher for Fort Whoop Up and the Galt museum.

Well maintained, good history and nice layout. This is probably the top place to visit in Lethbridge in addition to CASA.

Very enjoyable sauntering the paths within the Garden! It's takes in a lot smaller area that we thought it would, but every place you looks a perfectly landscaped! To take in the park an hour is adequate time. We have never been to a Japanese Garden before, so we enjoyed the peace & tranquility of it. The staff is very... More

This should really be a public park. Why should I pay a fee to enter a park that is so beautiful. The reason why I am giving it 3 stars is because I think that this park should be free for all to see. It has great cultural significance and it has very nice gardens. I shouldn't have to pay... More

We came to Lethbridge for mission trip. It was nice that they were open for that weekend until 10:45 pm because of Lantern Festival otherwise we will not see anything different from our hotel. Fortunately, it is close to where we stayed for the night. The garden is a nice place to meditate and enjoy the sound of nature. The... More
