About the Stroll Garden
Formed in 1985, the 7.5-acre Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden is the oldest attraction within the Springfield Botanical Gardens at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park. It is an authentic representation of traditional Japanese landscape design featuring a large koi pond, moon bridge, meditation garden and tea house. The Stroll Garden is maintained through partnership with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board, Friends of the Garden, Springfield Sister Cities Association and Springfield’s sister city of Isesaki, Japan.
