Spent some time walking around downtown Kelowna, had heard about the gardens so made a trip to see them. Lovely, quiet, picturesque space, obviously well tended. Peaceful, photogenic, a nice little break.

Beautiful garden right downtown. Managed to find the fish who were all hiding under the bridge. It was the Easter long weekend and only 16 degrees but I guess that was too hot for them already, lol.

A hidden gem that is worth seeing. Not sure that all the plants are actually from Japan as many of the trees have been replaces. Loks for a cute baby turtle in the first pond.

Sorry didn't see this question till now. The Garden I believe is closed now. Usually closes in Oct/Nov. The garden is beautiful anytime of the year that it is open. It should open again in March.
