The Japanese garden, located at 6100 Woodley Avenue, next to the Tillman Water Recreation Plant, was created in 1983 with City funds and, to this day, remains a beautiful place to spend a sunny afternoon in the Valley.
There are a couple of events coming up at the garden in the fall: on September 9, there wll be an Ikebana (flower arrangement) exhibition; and on October 14, an origami festival. For more information, click here to visit the garden's website, or click on the PDF above for Ikebana information.
