The gardens opened in 1979 to honour the memory of 231 Japanese Prisoners Of War who lost their lives in a mass breakout attempt on August 5 1944 –during WW2 and offers 5 ha of lush gardens, streams and landscapes, art and a café.

The Japanese Garden is the venue of Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival held each year in late September amid the spring blossoms.
