East Asian Plants to View in the Region

The Japanese Friendship Garden

The Japanese Friendship Garden
Located in downtown Lawrence, just north of the Watkins Community Museum of History, 1047 Massachusetts St. It contains an assortment of plantings, including Japanese maples, yoshino cherry trees, yews, and bamboo. Dedicated in October 2000 as a gift from Hiratsuka, Japan, Lawrence's Sister City, the downtown garden is an oasis of solitude and simplicity.
