Manito Park and Botanical Gardens

“Japanese gardens ask that you go beyond the garden spiritually, that you look at the garden not merely as an object but also as a path into the realms of spirit.”

— Makoto Ooka in The Temple in the House by Anthony Lawlor

Hubby and I drove to the big city.  We are spending the night in Spokane and will catch an early flight to Yuma, AZ (we’ll be on that plane by the time you see this post).  We visit Spokane often, and one of our all-time favorite places to come is one of Spokane’s most precious jewels…Manito Park and Botanical Gardens.

Here you will find a rose garden, a conservatory, a duck pond, a butterfly garden, perennial gardens, playgrounds, bike trails and so much more.  If you are ever in Spokane, and you have the time, put Manito Park on your ‘must-see’ list!

I offer up some photos taken in the Japanese garden.
