Japanese Gardens in Penticton

Whether you’re looking for bright and beautiful or eco- and region-friendly, there’s a colourful blossom for all eyes and noses.

Over 25 types of annuals can be viewed in Penticton and some sites to keep in mind for closer inspection are:


•The Rose Garden near the S.S. Sicamous on                 Lakeshore Drive 

•Riverside Drive, along Penticton Creek, from the Sicamous to the city’s north entrance

• Rotary Park, near the Peach on Okanagan Lake beach

•Rotary Point, just west of the Lakeside Resort and Casino

• Gyro Park, at the north end of Main Street


•The Penticton-Ikeda Japanese Garden (behind the Penticton Art Gallery), which is a quiet respite on the lake. The garden is a tribute to Penticton’s sister city in Japan and was mapped out by a professional Japanese garden designer.
