The Japanese Friendship Garden in Balboa Park is reopening!
Today was the first day that members could enjoy the garden. Starting on Monday, June 22, this most beautiful garden will be open to the public!
Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, face coverings and social distancing will be required.
I got off from work early today, so I headed into Balboa Park and found myself at the entrance to the Japanese Friendship Garden renewing my annual membership. Then I stepped into the garden. And I immediately lost myself in the tranquil beauty.
Sunlight touched green leaves. Water sparkled and splashed. Birds took flight as I moved from shadow to light. My mind calmed. I again understood the true beauty of life and this world.
