Kariya Park in Mississauga


I've been so busy lately I've fallen behind in my blogging.  I wanted to write about Kariya Park, a nice little zen garden I discovered when walking along Burhamthorpe near Square One in Mississauga.  I was strolling along, enjoying the sunshine, when I stumbled upon a little oasis tucked away amidst all the concrete and office buildings.

It's called Kariya Park and it was opened in 1992 to commemorate Mississauga's twin city relationship with Kariya City, Japan.  It's a tiny park but awfully peaceful and full of soothing and eye pleasing waterfalls, ponds and streams.  As you'll see from this photoset, it also has a great deal more.  It's been around for fifteen years but it's new to me.  What a find!
