Located at South end of Centennial Park, along the lake, this Japanese-inspired garden was designed in honor of the Japanese Canadians interned at New Denver during World War II. The garden was conceived in 1988 by the Slocan Lake Garden Society, a volunteer, non-profit organization locally known as the SLUGS. Work began in 1990. The SLUGS maintain the Garden, raising funds for their work through donations, raffles, and Friday Market sales of T-shirts, cards, books, and Kohan Plant Guide.
From May through October, a Kohan Garden Map and Plant Key is available for a $1.00 donation from the Centennial Park Campground Attendant.
Is it a shower of rain?
I thought as I listened.
From my bed, just awake.
But it was falling leaves
Which could not stand the wind.
