“Pleasant oasis downtown”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Just a block north of Bernard this is a really nice short stop in central downtown Kelowna. Nicely laid out with a short circular walk and many photo opportunities.

“Calm and Tranquil”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

It took me 2 years to actually find this garden (tucked behind city hall) but was well worth it. Although it's small it gives you a sense of peace and tranquility watching the koi swim in the ponds. Plus the gardening is shaped beautifully.

“A peaceful retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Always well kept and particularly beautiful when the lilly pads are in bloom. Benches surround the area for you to be able to sit down and contemplate the sights. Koi swim the pond and hide under the blooming water plants and play peek a boo with you. The shape of the shrubs and trees are most unusual and provide you with shade and a peaceful place to meditate.

“Not that great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Has the potential to be a really nice little garden but the water level was so low that there wasn't water under one of the bridges which meant there was no flow to the water and it just sat still getting stagnant. The koi are pretty cool though. Overall the park was really small and lacked that wow factor. We were in and out within 5 minutes.

“Garden setting in the heart of Kelowna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Peaceful. Well manicured. Unexpected tranquil garden in the middle of downtown. My kids enjoy it too!
