The garden is tiny, not somewhere you can explore. It takes maybe 5minutes to see the whole thing. It is lovely, but when we went it was full of interesting characters and people smoking pot. I felt like it might be a hangout for drug...More

Beautiful place to slowly walk through. Bridges to go over, fish to see in ponds. If you need time to rejuvenate you can seat on one if the benches and just enjoy all the foliage.

The Kasugai Japanese Garden is a beautiful, gentle oasis in the heart of the city. Located right behind city hall and on the edge of the arts and cultural district this is an excellent place to pause, enjoy the gardens and relax.

In the heart of the city a wonderful surprise a piece of the Orient. Doesn't take all day, worth a photo or ten. Would be nice for wedding pictures.

This isn't a big garden, but it's big enough to escape the sounds of the city and take a few moments to relax and enjoy the serenity of a Japanese garden. It is near city hall in downtown Kelowna and easily accessible.

Amazing botany, and the koi fish are something magical. I highly recommend as well if you are wanting to get amazing family photos done. It's not overly crowded at all.
