Ashland Parks and Recreation Commission (APRC) and Southern Oregon Japanese Association (SOJA) will host a celebration of the one-year anniversary of the renovated Ashland Japanese Garden. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 22, 2023, and all are invited.
SOJA will demonstrate the art of origami, there will be a bonsai tree display, and Dobra Tea will serve freshly brewed Japanese teas. Volunteer docents will be on site to answer questions and provide info about the history and meaning of the garden.
The Ashland Japanese Garden is located in historic Lithia Park up from the Butler Memorial Bandshell on Winburn Way across from the Pickleball Courts.
