Manito Park One of the Parks Of Spokane, Washington A United States City
The park was originally a public recreation area called Montrose Park. In 1903 its name was changed to Manito, said to mean Spirit of Nature in the Algonquian language. A park commission was formed in 1907 with annual funding, and in 1913 the famed Olmsted Brothers firm completed their landscaping plans for Spokane parks, including Manito Park. The Park was at one time a zoo until 1932 when the zoo closed down because of the lack of funding during the Great Depression. [from wikipedia]

Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden In Manito Park and Botanical Gardens One of the Parks Of Spokane, Washington

The Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden is a place where nature, tranquility and beauty come together. The garden is open daily from 8 a.m. to one half hour before dusk, April 1st through October 31st. The Nishinomiya Tsutakawa Japanese Garden was completed in 1974 and symbolizes the friendship of Spokane and its sister city, Nishinomiya, Japan. The well-known Japanese landscape architect, Nagao Sakurai, who at one time was in charge of the Imperial Palace grounds, was enlisted to design the garden in 1967. Construction of the waterfall and pond began in 1970. Late in 1973, after the original architect suffered a stroke, two landscape architects from Kobe, Japan, Shosuke Nagai and Hirohiko Kawai, were contracted to complete the garden, which was dedicated by both cities on May 17, 1974.
