A beautiful example of the “strolling pond” style, the Charlotte Partridge Ordway Japanese Garden is the perfect setting for a tranquil morning visit. The garden includes a variety of traditional elements, from stone lanterns and artfully placed rocks to water features and pine trees.
One of the most delightful elements of the garden, the elegant Tea House and calming Tea Garden are tucked away down a winding path. Now, thanks to community support, a new exit pathway leads back from the Tea House to the main garden path. This new feature improves pedestrian circulation.
Como Friends members and donors are invited to a Special Access Event from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 7, 2019.
Join us for a leisurely stroll through the Japanese Garden and explore the new Tea House pathway.
- Hear from Marjorie McNeely Conservatory’s expert horticulturists about caring for Como’s Japanese Garden, and see a Bonsai demonstration
- Visit with a Nature Walk teen volunteer
- Get to know one of Como’s special animal ambassadors
