GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION
Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission and the Ashland Parks Foundation wishes to thank the community for making the Grand Opening of the Ashland Japanese Garden a stunning success. Over 2000 people braved the rain and cold temperatures to attended the celebration—some from as far away as San Francisco.
Opening remarks were held at 1:00pm, followed by self-guided tours through the garden. There was an exhibit of Ikebana (the art of Japanese Flower Arrangement) by Makiko and Tsutae, along with a presentation by Bonsai groups of Southern Oregon. Everyone enjoyed food trucks and performances by Ashland Taiko and Elbow Room Taiko.
We appreciate everyone who came out on Saturday, October 22 to support the Ashland Japanese Garden, and we look forward to hosting more community events in the future.
