Gresham Japanese Garden - Tsuru Island (Sue Do)

Gresham Japanese Garden - Tsuru Island (Sue Do)  | Japanese-City.com

Location Information

219 S Main Ave.
Gresham, OR 97080

The four decades-old Japanese Garden, is only 3/4 of an acre. But it feels expansive. Broadleaf evergreens, pruned pines, vivid azaleas and bouncy groundcover are contained on an island created by Johnson Creek within the 21-acre Main City Park. Stroll past the shallow stream and pay attention to the intentionally irregular stone path, and you may feel temporarily transported.

Since the garden re-opened, citizen visits have increased substantially. Although we do not have a ticket system that allows an exact attendance count by the hour or by the day, we can see the increase at certain times of the day and general feedback from people when they stop to say “thank you”.
Watching the people come and go during the week or on the weekend allows one to realize that they are not just coming to the garden while visiting the park but rather they are visiting the park while coming to the garden it has become a destination.

The garden gets dozens of visitors every day and we have noticed that on especially nice days all the benches (5) will be filled with individuals that have found it to be enjoyable at lunch time.
