Soundscapes for Strolling

Overview

Anderson Japanese Gardens is committed to helping our region persevere through challenging times by providing a peaceful, natural environment that can be enjoyed by all.  Starting in October, the Garden will feature unobtrusive instrumental music that encourages a sense of calm contemplation for guests strolling throughout the garden. 

Soundscapes for Strolling is a passive listening experience that takes place in the Garden of Reflection every Thursday afternoon in October.  Musicians will play from 3:00 until the Garden closes at 5:00.  The experience is FREE for Garden Members and only the cost of regular Garden admission for non-members.
