JGarden Description:Also known as Heiwa Teien (lit. 'Peace Garden'), this site is located adjacent to Highway 6, NW of Nelson in the Kootenay Mountains.
A small garden constructed by Japanese Internees housed in Slocan and other interior communities during the Second World War. Though Slocan and Tashme were larger camps , this site is located in the adjacent village, New Denver, where internees were also kept. The New Denver 'Orchard' camp has the dubious distinction of having been operated by the BC Security Commission until 1957. Over 20,000 Japanese-Canadians were interned in centers like this one. This site is not only a garden, but also a museum and memorial site. Parts of the movie, Snow Falling on Cedars was filmed here. The designer of the garden was a former internee at the Rosebery camp, approximately 3km north of New Denver. The site also has a bookstore/gift shop
