Normandale Japanese Garden, MN





Normandale Japanese Garden
Normandale Community College
West Lot, 9700 France Ave S, Bloomington, MN

Of all the gardens we have seen I think that Japanese Gardens are really the most relaxing and peaceful ones to take in ...what is it? I truly have no answer ...but you walk in and immediately they just cause you to be lighter, more calm, more relaxed ...they just are great places to enjoy and just get back to nature. Lots of college kids taking in the calm times, laying in the grass, one was playing some sort of flute, no clue ...but it sure was a peaceful sound to listen to. A free garden, but they do enjoy and appreciate donations. Have a lovely day and thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you are well. Take Care!! Be Well & Be Blessed. Beth ( ;

it looks like a very pretty place...and it's nice that you felt such a sense of contentment when you visited. i like the bridge, red seems to be a common color in japanese gardens. it was fun to read about how other people were enjoying the garden!!

Yes, I have been to several. I believe there are centuries of design and meaning behind Japanese gardens.

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
