Didn't realize that Gresham had their own Japanese Garden, not a huge one like the one in Portland, but a Japanese Garden none the less. I wandered around and took some photos on a rainy April day. There is a sign where the park begins,...More

Saturday mornings from 9 to Noon volunteers can show up to work and clean the gardens and walking paths. It's a great way to see why this place is special. The people are friendly and you'll feel good about the ti e spent.

The garden is kept up nicely and very ornate. My young granddaughter did not care for the adventure, but the rest of us thought that it was a nice way to spend an afternoon in the sun. Not something you would want to do in...More

Small, lovely Japanese garden near downtown Gresham and just off the Springwater Trail. It's adjacent to Main St. Park which has a good playground for kids.

We live in the area and frequently walk through as part of our walk. It isn't large but it is very well kept by volunteers.

This garden was just redone about a year ago and they did an amazing job. Took a stroll through it and just felt the peacefulness.

I was not sure what a Japanese garden was, but this small garden was explained to me by my sister who is a Master Gardener. She said the Japanese garden emphasizes texture and different shades of green, not bright colorful flowers. This one was small...More

I was expected something a bit larger. So I was totally surprise to cross the bridge into the Japanese Garden to find that there wasn't that mush further for me to walk before I had pretty much seen it all. Nice to see what it...More
