Chill Time in the Zen Garden

Plan Your Visit

Indulge in a moment of peaceful contemplation in our Zen Garden. The garden was designed by renowned landscape architect and Buddhist monk Shunmyo Toshiaki Masuno, and was inaugurated on September 22, 1995, by Their Imperial Highnesses Prince and Princess Takamado of Japan.

The theme of the garden is Wakei No Niwa, which means to know and respect the history, culture and spirit of Japanese and Canadian people, and to foster harmony between all nations.
