JGarden Description:The Bridgevale Japanese Garden is an eight hectare including bridges, ponds and gazebos. It is located in Durban North and is the most recently developed of several larger parks. The gardens provide a quiet atmosphere and a welcome break from the city and are popular on weekends and public holidays with families enjoying a day out and a braai. 




With the south wind a gentle goddess came.
She soaked the bronze, she soaked the fountain,
She soaked the swallow's belly and its feathers of gold.
She hugged the tide, lapped the sand, drank the fish.
Secretly she soaked the temple, the bath-house, the theatre,
The confusion of her platinum lyre --
  the tongue of the goddess -- secretly.
Soaked my tongue.
