Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park was the brainchild of an Australian, George Turner Marsh, who had visited Japan and created the garden for the San Francisco Exposition of 1894. It was so popular that it became a permanent feature of the park.

An Asian fantasy of winding paths, reflective pools filled with carp, miniature trees, groomed plants, a hump-bridge and a pagoda from the Pan-Pacific Exhibition of 1915, the garden is very well-tended, charming and picturesque.
