GRAND OPENING

THE ASHLAND JAPANESE GARDEN WILL OPEN TO THE PUBLIC ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 22, 2022 AT 1:00PM. LEARN MORE >>>

 


For thousands of years, Japanese gardens have been carefully designed to inspire calm, encourage wonder, symbolize renewal, and heal the soul. Incorporating water, rocks, plants, and simple ornamentation, a Japanese garden brings these elements together to create a tranquil retreat. Rooted in traditional philosophies, Japanese gardens are designed for quiet meditation in nature, a place for peaceful contemplation and the discovery of universal truths.

And so we invite you to walk the garden counterclockwise as the designer Toru Tanaka intended. You may find peace and wellness through the healing tranquility of the garden. These gifts await, hidden within the intricacy and natural beauty of the Ashland Japanese Garden.

 

DIRECTIONS

The Ashland Japanese Garden is located at the heart of Lithia Park, above the Butler Memorial Bandshell, across from the pickleball courts.
