Kelowna Kasugai Sister City Association

  • During the summer, a search of the surrounding hills for rock suitable for use in the garden lead us to the Indian reserve land and good supply of excellent quality stone was donated. Other solicitations resulted in the donation of a substantial quantity of timber bamboo from the Hong Kong Pavilion at EXPO, and a local irrigation company provided the pumps and fittings for the waterfall, stream, and pond. As the summer of 1986 approached, the garden was beginning to draw much attention, and finally on July 24, 1987, an informal “completion” party was held in the garden. The next day “Kasugai Garden Park” was officially opened to the public.
