This is a beautiful Japanese themed park just opposite Square One. Lot of people don't even know that there is a park here. It has a nice lake with geese roaming around. When we visited in 2014, there was a wedding photo session going on. I am sure the couple would be cherishing their photos there. Some nice stone art... More

A little small but nicely kept. Look elsewhere if looking for a longer walk. Might be a good place for taking photos.

It always amazes me how few people know about this magical wonder. A true hidden gem in down town Mississauga.

Really lovely little Japanese garden hidden right across from Square One. It is a lovely walk to go through this small park, and the duck pond is extensive with multiple inhabitants of the fowl(bird) kind. The only drawback for us when we visited was that although there were multiple signs posted asking people not to feed the ducks and birds,... More

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.

This park is kept in such a great condition! It's quiet and right in the heart of Mississauga. Perfect place to take pictures for your Prom!
