The Japanese Garden at the Donald C. Tillman Reclamation Plant was part of Mr. Tillman's 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 six and a half 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 of the Garden.
More than 1,000 visitors come to the Gardens each month. Visit the Garden's webpage to learn more about the Garden including visits and tours.
