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.

If you have or need an hour to relax and listen to the sound of clear, running water, while being surrounded by beautifully pruned plants, the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden is a must. Sit on the bench over the running stream, close your eyes and appreciate the peacefulness so readily at hand!

The season pass lets you visit at various times of year to the gardens in their changing seasons. Also, if you have a season pass, you can take a guest for half-price.

We visited this week. The gardens were a bit small but still very beautiful. They have Yoga and a variety of weekly activities! Very inexpensive and most of the money helps with upkeep I think. We had a very enjoyable time.

It was okay, but I was not impressed. We have been to other gardens and although I tried to tell myself these gardens are suppose to be simple to help you obtain inner peace, I couldn't help thinking that a few flowers would be nice. It is small and cute, but not really my cup of tea.
