Blevins Japanese Garden Grand Reopening

This event has been postponed – new opening date to be announced soon.

Following a 10-month renovation with enhancements made possible by the Blevins family, the enhanced garden will feature a new accessibility path and entrance and renovated pavilion as well as new horticulture additions, including gingko, maple and stunted pine trees.

Last October, the garden was the beneficiary of the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT), a program that supports the enhancement of Japanese gardens outside of Japan. The MLIT sent a team of six gardeners and craftsmen to work alongside Cheekwood gardeners on the project. Efforts focused on deepening of the dry creek, placement of new boulders in the dry pond and rearrangement of the traditional Tsukubai basin behind the viewing pavilion.
