  • Beautiful place to slowly walk through. Bridges to go over, fish to see in ponds. If you need time to rejuvenate you can seat on one if the benches and just enjoy all the foliage.  more »
  • The Kasugai Japanese Garden is a beautiful, gentle oasis in the heart of the city. Located right behind city hall and on the edge of the arts and cultural district this is an excellent place to pause,...  more »
  • In the heart of the city a wonderful surprise a piece of the Orient. Doesn't take all day, worth a photo or ten. Would be nice for wedding pictures.  more »

  • A beautiful and serene spot for anyone needing a little sanctuary in their day. Awesome for taking pictures as well...with all the greenery and lily pads and koi fish, creek/pond etc... I thought the pond water was a tad too murky and dirty and was upset to see the meditation/sand/rake bed was roped off for nobody to use and get what's meant out of it. Very busy spot for a Tuesday afternoon. Also free to enjoy!!
  • Beautiful, peaceful and tranquil garden in the city centre. Well maintained although the entrance is free. You need less then an hour to walk around there, but you may wish to stay longer. There is a pay parking across the entrance.
  • Amazing and beautiful little hidden gem. Has passionate gardeners who do an amazing job keeping the garden up with beautiful long grasses trees and shrubs the koi pond is exceptional and beautiful with the contrast of dark and Light the fish look very healthy and they're quite surprisingly large definitely a great visit for any one who hasn't taken in the park before I usually go there at least once or twice a year and it's very peaceful and full of serenity
  • The site is well kept and really tranquil. It's a nice place to escape the noise and be in the moment. Definitely didn't expect to see something like this downtown. There's lots of benches to sit down and take in the site and fully enjoy the gardens.
  • Very beautiful peaceful garden centrally located in Kelowna. It is a small but very nicely manicured garden. It was a lovely shady escape from the hot sunny day.
