Japanese Garden

Rotary Botanical Gardens’ (RBG) Japanese Garden was designed and built by Petranek Brothers Landscaping (Milton, WI) in 1989. Originally positioned on the west edge of an old sand and gravel quarry, this garden was one of the first built when RBG was founded.

This contemplative setting has been designed to offer a view to the adjacent pond and create an immersive experience. Features include gates, fences, a dry gravel sea, stones, a waterfall, stream, many Japanese lanterns and other elements.
