This Japanese garden sits on the hillsides next to a 2 acre, spring-fed pond in a shady, peaceful corner of one of Dallas’ neighborhood parks.The garden’s trees include deodar cedars, Japanese black pines, sabal palms, Japanese maples, Afghan pines, golden rain tree and Japanese maidenhair (aka Ginkgo biloba).
The Japanese Garden begins with an artful design by Hoichi Kurisu and the firm Kurisu International.
