preservation and heritage study
In 1967 the City of Lethbridge celebrated Canada’s Centennial with the opening of the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden. This traditional Japanese garden is intended to acknowledge the contribution of the Canadians of Japanese heritage to the history and culture of Southern Alberta.

As the garden and structures approach the half century in age it is the intent of the City of Lethbridge and the Nikka Yuko Garden Society to rehabilitate and restore the site for a 50 year celebration. Towards this goal the heritage architectural services of RKH Architecture commissioned to:


The cultural importance and heritage value of this garden merits that it will become a designated National Historic Site and due to its importance a regular maintenance program is required. The present site condition is in fair to good condition. Despite its reasonable condition, the structures require attention in order to protect their structural integrity.

RKH Architecture prepared a restoration plan that carefully followed the Parks Canada “Standards and Guidelines for the Preservation of Historic Sites in Canada”.
