JGarden Description:Kariya Park lies in the center of Missassauga, with the famous Civic Centre clock-tower easily glimpsed through the greenery.

The park was officially opened in July 1992, honouring the eleventh anniversary of the sister-city relationship with Kariya, Japan.

Designed in 1989 by Mississauga city staff landscape architects, the master plan was reviewed by their counterparts in Japan before construction began.

The garden is not complete and various features are being phased in as funding becomes available. When the project is complete it will encompass several different forms of Japanese garden. Initially, meandering walkways lead visitors in and around a quiet pond and hill garden and through a stroll garden, with shrubbery, rocks and low flowerbeds. Future plans include the addition of a tea-house at the edge of the pond, a pavilion at the north end of the park, and a dry courtyard garden. 




Do not seek to emulate the old masters. Seek what they sought.
