Taiko drumroll please… today, we celebrate the reopening of Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden, at Springfield Botanical Gardens at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park! This 7.5-acre walled garden was created in 1985 with authentic Japanese landscaping, celebrating Springfield’s long-standing Sister CIty relationship with Isesaki, Japan. It features a large koi pond, a moon bridge, meditation garden, tea house, meandering paths and stepping stones. The garden is maintained in partnership with @Springfield SIster Cities Association and @Friends of the Garden. It’s a perfect day trip for all ages, with a sense of discovery around every corner! Hours are Wednesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.- 7 p.m., closed Monday and Tuesday. Admission is $4/adults, $2/kids 12 and under.
