Japanese Garden, Montreal

4.6
#10 of 37 in Parks in Montreal
Any time of the year, Japanese Garden offers a quality time spent among beautiful plants. Designed by the late Ken Nakajima, an acclaimed Japanese landscape architect, and opened in the summer of 1988, the garden makes a favorite relaxation spot for both locals and tourists. After overcoming the initial challenge of caring for plants from a different climate, the garden continued to bloom and add new species every year. In winter, some of the more sensitive plants get moved inside, but during the warmer months you get to experience all the garden's glorious smells and colors. Relax with family and friends, or have lunch in the park’s restaurant and enjoy the atmosphere. Put Japanese Garden into our Montreal tour itinerary planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Beautifully landscaped garden. Highlight for me is the little pond of lotus, gorgeous! One thing I don't understand is, why they dye the water at the lotus pond, the koi pond and the waterfall blue?? It feels so artificial.
  • Beautiful japanese garden with an interesting bonsai collection. Guided tours of the tea garden are available.
  • It is the first time that I visited this site and I will definitely return. Great place to relax and to calm down.
