Nice break from shopping!

We found this while looking for a place to take a short break from shopping along water street. It's very calming and just 1 block from the main small shops.

This is a really lovely garden and very quiet and peaceful...right in the middle of downtown Kelowna. I have not been there in the winter but the Spring, Summer and early Fall it is lovely. If you just want a quiet moment, this is it! if you enjoy the plants it is also perfect! If you want to sit down... More

Located in the downtown area of the city, this luxurious and well maintained garden, is an artistic palette of lush vegetation. I will go again often, and sit and knit on a strategically placed bench, pretending I am in some otherworldly realm.

Lovely oasis in the middle of town. You can spend as little or as much time as you need. Nice place to take a rest in the middle of a busy day. The garden is gorgeous and inspiration for my own yard. I go several times a year.

Despite having a map, it was a little difficult to locate the entrance to this lovely little garden. We finally noticed a small sign a little way along a path perpendicular to the Queensway. It is a very peaceful spot, with a little Zen garden, bridges and koi pond, perhaps not as perfect as a garden in Japan but certainly... More

The authenticity is limited due to Canadian climate friendly construction. Colors are subdue and layout and detailing is lacking. But credit should be given for a good attempt.

This is a hidden oasis behind city hall; beautiful, quiet and peaceful. It is a nice tourist attraction or a nice place to take your brownbag lunch. The lily pads are picturesque.

Pleasantly surprised to find this gem tucked in behind City Hall. A pamphlet described the various plants and functions or meanings of the bridges, waterfalls, plants, ponds and the fish (Koi). A group of school children burst through enthusiastically (nice to watch) and then the calm descended again until I reluctantly had to leave. Well worthwhile.

This beautiful garden is small, but gives the appearance of a larger garden with its winding pathways, and many places to observe the central pond. Beautiful plants, a stream, waterfalls, and bridges make this little garden a Jewel.
