Paint Out: Osaka Gardens (Garden of the Phoenix)
June 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT
This is on a Sunday.
Closest exit from Lake Shore Drive is Hayes Drive. Second parking lot west, and then a long walk. Don’t be discouraged!
This Japanese strolling garden, also called Garden of the Phoenix, is located on the Wooded Island in Jackson Park.
As a Japanese strolling garden, views are framed from a meandering path. Seasonal plantings add texture and variety, and typical elements such as a moon bridge, lanterns, and a waterfall, are included. The garden now features a gate, pavilion, a stone water basin, Turtle Island, a moon bridge, rock formations, and several lanterns. The garden is also accessible by a bridge on the north side of the lagoon
