A little oasis of tranquillity that never fails to calm

Extending over 4,000m2, The Edogawa Commemorative Garden is a real hidden gem on the Central Coast. This little oasis is located in the Gosford Regional Gallery precinct and is based on a traditional 'shuyu' (strolling garden), incorporating Japanese features.

Being so close to the hustle and bustle of Central Coast Highway, you genuinely feel like you a million miles away at Gosford Edogawa Commemorative Gardens.

The Racked Dry Stone Garden

The gardens were officially opened in 1994, after Gosford formed a Sister City Agreement with Edogawa, Japan in 1988. It was designed under the original principals of the Japanese Heian (700AD) period.

The beautiful Koi Pond

Features of the Garden include:

The Roofed Pavilion- that overlooks the Koi Pond. The pond is home to pretty koi fish

Ornamental Bridge

Meandering Pathways

Manicured Gardens

Stone Lanterns

Timber Footbridges

Traditional Japanese Teahouse

The garden is also home to spectacular floral displays including wisteria pergola, plantings of pines, maples, cherries, azaleas, lotus, and water lilies.

The Traditional Japanese Teahouse

The Gosford Edogawa Commemorative Gardens is undoubtedly a place of tranquillity and makes for the perfect city escape.

Being hidden away means that you might be able to explore and experience the gardens without a soul in sight (besides the birds and wildlife, of course).

Garden tours are available from the gallery shop as well as fish food that can be purchased to feed the fish. Bags of fish food are $2 each.

Fish feeding time!

There is also a small children's play area in the gardens, with toddler novelty boards and a colouring station. The Point Café is open for lunch daily and for dinner Thursday and Saturday nights.

The art gallery is home to a diverse and stimulating exhibition program that consists of local, national and international exhibitions.
