Added to JGarden:
90 acre site includes some National Registry Trees, greenhouse, conservatory, rock garden, English garden, lilac garden and duck pond in addition to the Japanese garden. The rockwork and pond are reported to be quite fine. The garden was designed and partially built by Sakurai in 1970 for the World's Fair. However, he suffered a stroke during the construction process and his son completed the project.
Directions: Located on Grand Boulevard between 17th and 25th Avenues; Japanese garden is situated on the western edge of the park at the intersection of Bernard Street and 21st Avenue. The gardens were built as part of the relationship with Spokane's Sister City, Nishnomiya and is now maintained by the City.
