A lovely, tranquil garden in traditional Japanese style. All green and white vegetation Contours of lush grasses and green trees and shrubs. Small, gently cascading waterfalls with beautiful rock formations. A place to rest the mind and the spirit. So quiet and peaceful.

These gardens are just beautiful. The tour was very interesting and informative, but a little long for us with 3 young children so we ended up exploring the gardens mainly on our own. Would be peaceful place to spend some time on one's own.

We had a long weekend stay at Lethbridge and we were looking forward to see this Japs garden but it was closed at this time which disappointed us bigtime.

My husband and I had a chance to visit Nikki Yuko for their display of Christmas Lights. It was absolutely one of the most beautiful, enchanting and magical places!! We can't wait to return this Christmas to experience them again!!

We went to see the lights on New Year's Eve. Gardens are quite pretty all covered in snow and the lights made for a peaceful atmosphere. Wagon rides and hot chocolate made my kids very happy.

Visited this place a handful of times, the last time being for the ringing of the bell on New Year's Eve. The garden was lit up with twinkly lights and I'm surprised they didn't do this earlier! The park was attractive, there was a horse-drawn...More

Well... this is Canada and we are still in the early part of spring on the plains at the foot of the Rockies! Unfortunately, today, they were closed for the season. It is good for a 15 minute stop to checkout the viewable shrubs and...More
