Point Defiance Flower & Garden Festival - Japanese Garden Tour

Presented by Metro Parks Tacoma and Western Washington Toyota Dealers

June 1 - 2, 2024

Guided tours of the Japanese Garden during the Point Defiance Flower & Garden Festival will highlight the garden's unique features, plants and history.

The Japanese Garden at Point Defiance was established in the early 1960s and features azaleas, rhododendrons, Japanese cherry trees, crab apples and large and small pines. In addition, an oriental footbridge, waterfall, Japanese lanterns and a small “tea house” further enhance the grounds.

It provides a peaceful area to enjoy a bit of solitude and is especially enchanting in early spring.
