Horsforth Hall Park, Japanese Garden (Horsforth)
Colour imageOctober 2003 The Japanese Garden in Horsforth Hall Park was constructed in the early 1980s on the site of the old tennis courts. It was thoughtfully planned to include important elements of traditional Japanese garden design. These reflect the spiritualism and appreciation of natural materials. The crane is a symbol of longevity and is represented by an island, a group of rocks symbolise Holy Mount Fuji, and designs for two windows are taken from the family crests of Samurai warriors. A red, painted Japanese bridge spans a water feature. Trees and plants are natives of Japan, Acers, Japonicas, Bamboos, Azaleas and Cherries to name but a few. The harmony with nature creates a peaceful and tranquil environment.
