Shofu-en Japanese Garden celebrated its 40th anniversary on June 23, 2019. 松風園 Shofu-en translates to ‘Garden of Pine and Wind.’

A traditional Japanese stroll garden, Shofu-en was inspired by Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and it features 130 character pines transplanted from the foothills. Designed by Dr. Koichi Kawana, the garden adheres to a traditional Japanese aesthetic, while using native plants and local materials.

See the Then and Now Photos on view in the Japanese Garden through Dec. 31. Visitors can look for enlarged historical photographs in the Japanese Garden that show how each location looked in 1979 through the early 1980s.
