Momiji Japanese Garden PNE

Momiji Japanese Garden

The Momiji Gardens, located on the south side of the Garden Auditorium building, along East Hastings Street, were completed in 1993. The Park Board concurred with the PNE and the Japanese-Canadian community, that this was an appropriate site for a garden that was to commemorate the tragic Hastings Park internment of more than 8,000 Canadians of Japanese origin almost 52 years earlier. It was also symbolic in that this garden would represent the first step in the eventual transformation of Hastings Park into a public greenspace.
