Kariya Park is a peaceful Japanese garden that pays tribute to Kariya City in Japan, the twinned sister city to Mississauga. It is one of the most tranquil places at the heart of busy city of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
It is a legacy to future generations, and will mature with age like its array of rhododendrons, pine, gingko and sweetgum trees, remaining a peaceful haven from the bustle of city life as Mississauga grows around it.
The park is designed with many Japanese elements and filled with Sakura trees and stunning cherry blossoms in springtime.
Kariya Park is open to the public seven days a week, 7:00 am to 9:00 pm, through the entrance on Kariya Drive, just off Burnhamthorpe Road east of the Mississauga Civic Centre.
