Long Description:
The garden is located behind the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society in the northwest part of Delaware Park. It's a very popular place for wedding photos, and is along the Delaware Park bicycle path.

The Japanese Garden on Mirror Lake was originally conceived in 1970 with construction being completed in 1974. The purpose was to create a place of beauty and tranquility as well as commemorate the Sister City relationship between Buffalo and Kanazawa, Japan. In 1996, the garden was renovated and rededicated. This was made possible by a grant from the commemorative Association for the Japan World Exposition (1970) Fund, the generous support of the people of Kanajawa and Buffalo, and funds provided by the City of Buffalo.
