“After dinner walk”
Review of Japanese Gardens

Japanese Gardens
Ranked #10 of 23 things to do in Grand Forks
Attraction details
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The gardens are peaceful and there are benches to sit and take in the view. Mosquitoes find it inviting as well. Not one of the best Japanese gardens we have visited, but for Grand Forks it is OK. Needs a good group of volunteers. Having said that, we did enjoy our stroll and would go back if in the area. easy to find and walk. Bring you spray though. I can imagine a family having a picnic there at the tables while the kids run. Only wild life was a rabbit.

We enjoy strolling through this garden in the evening hours working off our dinner. We have been through here many times, sometimes it needs work and other times not so much. Lots of mosquitos so spray yourselves before venturing into the shady areas. Lots of picnic tables and a few benches for a rest.

Not being taken care of very well. Could be a beautiful place. Did take grands there and they enjoyed running around. Would love to see some gardening done and things arranged better.

Fun to walk around this park and look for wildlife. We have found groundhogs, fish, turtles and lots of birds here. We have also taken some beautiful family photos here in front of the beautiful statues in the gardens

It is a small area with a little bridge that goes over the water. There are I think 3 total pagodas. It is calming, but wish it was a little bigger.
