Japanese Garden at Horsforth Hall Park reopens

The Japanese Garden at Horsforth Hall Park in Leeds has now been reopened following a £90,000 restoration project.

Originally opened in 1987, the Japanese Garden is a celebration of traditional oriental gardens, with various features and materials used to represent the mountains, woodland areas, waterfalls, lakes and open grasslands found in Japan.

It has taken nine months to restore the garden to its former glory. Councillor John Procter says: "This project has been a major success and the restored garden looks fantastic.

"The only one of its type in Leeds, the Japanese Garden provides a wonderful tranquil environment with its diverse and interesting features, and I am sure it will once again prove a very popular attraction at this well-used community park. Everyone involved in the project can feel very proud of their efforts."

Horsforth Hall Park and the Japanese Garden is open to the public every day of the year during daylight hours.
