The Edogawa Commemorative Garden is a beautiful peaceful space located in the Gosford Regional Gallery precinct. Gosford formed a Sister City Agreement with Edogawa, Japan in 1988. A gift from Edogawa, the Garden was officially opened in September 1994 and has been designed in accordance with the original principles of the Japanese Heian (700AD) period.
Extending over 4,000m2, the garden is based on a traditional ‘shuyu’ (strolling style) garden, incorporating Japanese features. With meandering pathways, a roofed Japanese pavilion overlooking the Koi pond, raked dry stone garden and traditional Japanese teahouse, the garden offers a tranquil setting in which to relax and enjoy art and nature.
The roofed pavilion overlooking the Koi pond is a popular choice for wedding ceremonies, and children love feeding the fish from the ornamental bridge. Bags of fish food are available from the gallery shop. Audio tours are available daily. Guided tours of the garden for groups and organisations can also be arranged.
The garden is open daily and entry is free.
