JGarden Description:Bordered on three sides by the waters of Lake Whitehurst, Norfolk Botanical Garden represents an mosaic of many gardens covering 155 acres. Norfolk's unique climate allows co-existence of botanical species usually found widely-separated geographically. The Garden dates back to 1938, when 200 workers from the Works Progress Administration cleared the dense, native vegetation and planted 4,000 azaleas. Today, the Garden features one of the largest and most diverse collections of azaleas, camellias, roses and rhododendrons on the east coast.

The Japanese garden was created in 1962 to honor Norfolk's sister city, Moji, Japan and was rededicated in 1962 to Kitakyushu, formerly Moji. The Japanese Garden was redesigned and refurbished in the summer of 1995. Visitors will enjoy a traditional pond and bridge and foliage native to Japan. Plants to look for in the garden include: Japanese Black Pine, Japanese Snowbell, Hankow Willow, Flowering Cherry, Japanese Red Maple and Japanese Live Oak.
