The Japanese Garden at the Donald C. Tillman Water Reclamation Plant was part of Mr. TillmanÔŅĹs vision to create a world class treatment plant that would not only treat wastewater but also provide a sanctuary where the public could enjoy the peaceful surroundings while learning about water reclamation.
The 6.5 acre garden was designed by world-famous designer Dr. Koichi Kawara and dedicated in 1984. The garden is irrigated with effluent from Tillman, and the 2.75 acre lake is filled with the plant's treated water. The Mayor of Los Angeles appoints members of the Japanese Garden Mayor's Citizens Advisory Committee to oversee all major decisions related to use, maintenance, and future plans.
More than 1,000 visitors come to the Gardens each month. Visit the Garden's web site to learn more and to make arrangements for a tour.
