On the north side of the Normandale Community College Campus is a picturesque Japanese Garden that is one of my favorite places to visit in Bloomington, Minnesota. The grounds are clean and neatly kept, the trees are excellently groomed, and the atmosphere is tranquil. Students at the college regularly stroll through the garden during school hours and groups frequently visit seven days a week. The garden is often reserved for weddings and private events that leave visitors with a great experience in a well groomed park setting. (Food is not allowed in the garden, so private events should not include serving meals).The head caretaker's name is Sam, and he deserves all of the credit for the overall appearance of the garden. Sam does a great job, and if you see him working in the garden, please do tell him his work is appreciated. The pond has a great collection of Koi Fish and Sam has accepted donations of healthy Koi fish from private parties to add to the pond. Visit the garden, any time of year, (the garden is open in winter, but snow is not regularly removed), you will not be disappointed. Thanks, Sam!
