Memberships

Thank you for your interest in Membership!

We are excited to announce the groundbreaking of our Cultural Crossing project this September. Our expansion will ensure and enhance your continued enjoyment of the Garden by providing additional spaces for reflection, learning, and social interaction for our members and growing number of visitors. Please visit www.culturalcrossing.com for more information about the project.

The initial construction phase of the project will require a temporary closure of the Garden in the low-season from September 8, 2015 to March 1, 2016. Your support during this period is essential to the success of the project. We look forward to welcoming you as a Gateway Member, the special category of membership for individuals who which to be a part of the Garden at this historic time.

Gateway Members will receive a special membership card recognizing their support and will carry  this designation for the lifetime of their membership. During each of the six months of closure, we will offer events exclusive to Gateway Members that will provide new ways for you to enjoy the benefits of membership. And when our new facilities open in spring of 2017, you will be invited to once-in-a-lifetime events to celebrate the first days of the new expanded Garden.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss other membership options during the period of closure at membership@japanesegarden.com or (503) 542-0299.
