The Garden is a beautiful place to refresh your mind and soul. The ever changing display put on by the flora each season is worth experiencing many times a year.

Absolutely beautiful surroundings. Highly recommend for any tourists visiting Lethbridge, Alberta. Their gardens are well manicured and professionally cared for. The Japanese have shown true talent in making one's visit to these gardens truly memorable.

We really enjoyed walking through the garden following the pamphlet guiding us along the way. Ringing the bell was a highlight. I don't think it is best for young rambunctious children as it is groomed meticulously. It is stunning although a bit smaller than I...More
