  • Very peaceful location in city center. Places to sit. Bring your lunch. Free.
  • We had our engagement photos done here and wow what a place to have it done. So weird to find such beautiful gardens in the center of town!!
  • Very nice scenery in the middle of downtown. A bit on the small side. It is behind city hall. Lots of large koi in the pond.
  • Loved this little garden. A bit of background info: it's a gift to the city from its sister city in Japan in order to establish the good relations and overall friendship between the two nations. It is a gorgeous piece of Japan within Kelowna, a little piece of heaven. It's a quiet place meant for meditation and contemplation. It has a soft stream which leads to a larger pond with koi (the colorful Japanese fish) surrounded by a very specific array of trees, stones, and Japanese elements meant to find the balance among us and nature. But don't feed the koi, they'll get sick and everything will go to hell... other than that, have fun!! It's a great place to hang out with the family.
  • Wonderful environment. Super calming. Great place for peaceful meditation, self reflection, and especially a date.
