Japanese garden re-opens at Horsforth Hall Park in Leeds

A £90,000 project to revamp the Japanese garden at Horsforth Hall Park in Leeds has been completed this week.

The nine-month project to restore the Japanese garden at Horsforth Hall Park has been carried out by Leeds City Council's parks and countryside service with support from the Friends of Horsforth Hall Park, environmental charity Green Leeds and Biffaward.

Originally opened in 1987, the Japanese garden had become run-down so the Friends group successfully applied to Green Leeds and Biffaward for funding.

Leeds City Council also added to the funding and the parks service carried out the improvement works.

Leeds City Council executive member for leisure Councillor John Procter, said: "This project has been a major success and the restored garden looks fantastic. The only one of its type in Leeds, the Japanese garden provides a wonderfully tranquil environment with diverse and interesting features, and I am sure it will once again prove a very popular attraction at this well-used community park. Everyone involved in the project can feel very proud of their efforts."
