Beautiful park in the centre of Mississauga, twinned with Kariya city in Japan. Ducks, turtles, coi abound in the pond. A place to rest and regroup at city centre in Mississauga. Can see Japanese heritage there, including a large bell from Kariya. Lovely spot!!!

We lucky to live less than 10 minutes away from this garden. We love this garden especially "Blossom Spring" in May. It is also near biggest shopping mall in Mississauga (Square One). We came to this garden so many time during the year. Truc Hoa

This is a small park that is an oasis in the middle of the city. You'd hardly know you were close to the chaotic Square One shopping centre. It's a great place to visit in the spring to see the cherry blossoms in bloom. The park is to honor Kariya City in Japan, Mississauga's sister city. Go for a stroll... More

Its a small but well maintained Japanese zen garden ....there are small walking trails, a small pond and you see young newly wedded couples coming here to take photographs amidst the beautiful scenery.

If you have ever been to Japan and love their parks - this tiny bit of Japan right in the middle of Mississauga is a great reminder.

The day we visited Kariya Park a group of Japenese models in stunning dresses were the subject of a photo shoot - all proceeds going to charity. The stunning cherry blossoms were in bloom, the pond full of little ducklings - a beautiful little park to enjoy a quiet walk!

If you are planning for a small wedding, Kariya Park is a FAHNtastic choice!!!!! You can never tell that it is hidden in the middle of downtown Mississauga. The park is easily accessible by public transit and there are also plenty public parking in the area. After attending the wedding, you may want to do some shopping at Square One;... More

Lovely gardens, great for photographs, but terrible for parking. There's only a few spots long the street, and while we managed to snag one, the parking cops were making a killing with the various wedding parties being forced to illegally park.

Our plans to visit High Park in Toronto was spoiled due to the forecasted rainy weather on Saturday so we decided to visit Kariya Park on the Friday as a substitute of seeing the cherry blossoms. Kariya Park is a nice small Japanese themed park. It had a handful of birds and fishes. They only had about 5 cherry blossom... More
