Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Friends of the Garden was created in 2009 with a vision to at last provide sustaining support to the Japanese Garden created by Fredrick Law Olmstead in 1893 on the Wooded Island as part of the Columbian Exposition. We embrace the full history of the Garden to which the Meiji Emperor made original donations and which has received repeated support from the people of Japan and the City of Chicago. Since 1973, the City of Osaka has been the "best friend" of the Garden, and that is why the Garden was rededicated as the Osaka Garden by the City of Chicago. Our foundation aims to provide the continuous sustaining support which the Garden has never had. Our dreams are great, but we are starting small. Please become a Friend, and bring your ideas, donations, talent and enthusiasm!
The Garden is located on the north end of the Wooded Island, best accessed by the bridge on the north end of the island. If you are driving, you can park in the small service lot at the SW corner of the Museum, then walk south about 500 yards, over the bridge and onto the island.
