Opened in 1987 “to demonstrate the friendship and union between Kelowna and its sister city in Kasugai, Japan,” the Kasugai Gardens is a lovely moment of Zen in the busy city. This small garden features traditional elements notable in Japanese gardens, such as beautiful stonework, mini waterfalls and a pond stocked with large – beautiful – Koi fish. Taken together, these elements bring us a calming presence and allow for moments of personal reflection.

When we patronized this hidden gem of a site, BC was in the midst of a record heatwave. As such, we didn’t spend a significant amount of time exploring the garden, but we made sure to appreciate the intricate detail and planning that’s gone into this place. It speaks much to, and highlights, the importance of building cultural connections with communities near and far.

And while I wouldn’t go as far as an earlier reviewer and declare Kasugai Gardens “Like a miniature Butchart,” it is nevertheless a beautiful place to visit – and a must on any Kelowna itinerary.

Was on the list to find while walking about in Kelowna. Just a lovely park in the middle of town. Easy to find and you might be the only ones there.

Beautiful oasis in downtown Kelowna. It's in behind Kelowna City Hall. Very picturesque. Quiet little spot with benches to allow you to sit and reflect. Glad we did not miss this.

This is NOT to be missed when visiting downtown Kelowna. It's heaven to simply sit and enjoy the greenery while I"m eating lunch or enjoying a coffee. It's the perfect way to find peace for a few minutes if you're waiting for a bus or a dinner reservation nearby.

This tiny garden is a hidden gem! It was cloudy the day we visited the garden but we were able to appreciate its beauty. I have only one suggestion concerning the plants featured in the garden. It would be interesting to add a little name tag describing the plants. For more pictures, visit my IG (@kelledstyle) :-)

Its a small garden park in the middle of downtown. Smart design, the perfect place for a rest and some peace if you are travel weary. Pick up a sandwich at a local deli, relax and enjoy your lunch overlooking the koi pond. A great way to recharge.
