“Pretty but felt like a drug dealing spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

The garden is tiny, not somewhere you can explore. It takes maybe 5minutes to see the whole thing. It is lovely, but when we went it was full of interesting characters and people smoking pot. I felt like it might be a hangout for drug deals. Not unsafe, but not ideal for a walk with our son.

The most magnificent specimens of trees and shrubs. So very peaceful. Take a book and relax. Just a lovely spot.

“Beautiful Retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This small Japanese Garden is full of nature's surprises in every corner. We particularly enjoyed the turtles, ducks, irises and waterfalls. When you need a break from the busy pace of Kelowna, take a retreat to this garden which is free!

“Japanese experience in Kelowna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

A place of beautiful flowers and plants... They are doing a great job maintaining the area and making sure that it is clean! I personally love the bonsai plants and the fountain!

“Quiet and serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Lovely flowers and trees, plus a large fish pond with rippling waterfall. A nice quiet place to relax, enjoy lunch or just amble.
