Name chosen for new Japanese garden cultural centre

LETHBRIDGE, AB – A special name has been chosen for the brand new cultural centre that’s currently under construction just outside the Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden.

The Lethbridge and District Japanese Garden Society has decided to name it the Bunka Centre. Bunka means “culture” in Japanese, which encompasses the cultural experiences and programs it’ll offer.

The centre will be open year-round for visitors to enjoy two dedicated exhibit spaces, a cafe and rental spaces, with room for up to 100 people. The founders of the garden will also be honoured throughout the Bunka Centre with exhibits and spaces dedicated in their names.

The facility is expected to be complete by the end of this summer, and the community could get a special sneak peek inside by the fall.

The official opening, though, will happen at the start of the 2021 Winter Light Festival.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
