The James Irvine Garden (Seiryu-en, or Garden of the Clear Stream) is an oasis in the central city. It was built in the tradition of Japanese Gardens and covers a sloping, triangular area of 8,500 square feet adjacent to the Center Building and the The George & Sakaye Aratani Japan America Theatre. It was designed by Takeo Uesugi, and was completed December 1979.
The garden received the prestigious National landscape Award from the American Association of Nurserymen which was presented by First Lady Nancy Reagan in cermonies at the White House in 1981. This is the highest and oldest national honor such a project can receive in the field of environmental improvement and community beautification.
May all who step into the garden find joy and a sense of peace, harmony with nature and inspiration from the indomitable spirit of the community pioneers.
