Japanese Friendship Garden Reopens After Flood ?

The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) Japanese Friendship Garden in Kelley Park reopened Saturday, Sept. 2, six months after the lower garden was inundated with six feet of flood waters. Interdepartmental collaboration – PRNS, Public Works, Transportation and Environmental Services – made it possible to remove 150,000 gallons of flood water from the lower koi pond. Through the Storm Flood National Dislocated Worker Grant, Work2Future hires assisted garden staff with mud removal. During the recovery, park rangers and zoo staff rescued 40 large koi fish from the muddy waters. After a quarantine period, they will rejoin the koi fish in the upper ponds. The admission-free Japanese Friendship Garden is now open daily from 10:00 a.m. to sunset. For more information, please contact Justin Long, PRNS Deputy Director, at 408-793-5579.
