The Kasugai Japanese Garden is small, exquisitely manicured garden in the downtown area. It is a perfect place to stroll, sit on a bench to enjoy the Koi fish, or read a book. Lovely.

I probably took 30 pictures of this beautiful garden .... around every corner was another stunning view. One of the pictures is on my desktop.

Right by the bus stop, close to the beach, free - the gardens are quaint and pretty, a nice little walk and a beautiful and popular place to take photographs. Not really a "must-see" tourist attraction, but is very worth visiting if you are in the highly popular area.

We've visited this garden every couple of years since 2000. It's never been more beautiful. We've always enjoyed the garden but it appears the current landscaper has bumped it up a couple of notches and it's now a work of art. Absolutely lovely.

If your in the downtown area and have 20 minutes to spare, take a walk through this beautiful garden where you can take a deep breath and relax. The bubbling brooke leading to the fish pond is very pretty.

Cute little garden. Free visit. Close to Kelowna waterfront just behind city hall. Allow half an hour to visit.

Tucked away behind our city hall is a small park that oozes tranquility. Laced with ponds and bridges and Japanese flora, it is a great place to get away from the everyday stresses and just relax..

What an incredible hidden oasis in downtown Kelowna. Quiet and peaceful. Beautifully manicured. So glad we found it. Great for a romantic date or solo.

This is not a very big garden, but it was very nice. Felt you were so close to nature. There was fishes there and lots of trees. Beautiful scenery.

It's a lovely space that someone obviously cares for. The foliage and koi pond are beautiful. The downside is the noise from the very busy street. I mean, it's difficult to feel any sort of "Zen" with buses and cars roaring along side. A homeless chap was rummaging through the garbage and there were beer cans along the path which... More
