  • Always bring visiting friends and family here. It is such a beautiful and relaxing part of downtown. A true urban oasis.
  • On a hot summer's day, this is a cool, quiet oasis.
  • For some reason, this place is relatively unpopular and unknown, but it's a nice place to relax and it's pretty well maintained. It's beautiful... I wish we had more introspective, peaceful places like this in Kelowna instead of only playgrounds and sports fields.
  • Kasugai garden is a nice little quiet spot in the middle of everything and the best part is that, for a minute or two, you can kind of forget all the stuff outside the fence. Also the fish are really pretty.
  • 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.
