Extended Hours Begin Monday, April 1 – No Foolin’!

Celebrate Summer Hours:  Sponsor the Charlotte Partridge Ordway Japanese Garden!

On April 1, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory will resume extended hours, opening every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To celebrate, Como Friends is featuring a special $40 sponsorship package in honor of the Charlotte Partridge Ordway Japanese Garden.

This historic sansui garden, a gift from St. Paul’s sister city of Nagasaki, Japan, has been beautifully restored during the past year to better reflect the original intentions of its acclaimed designer, the late Masami Matsuda, a ninth generation Nagasaki landscape gardener. Click here to help Como’s beloved Japanese Garden grow! Support from people like you makes it possible to invest in world-class improvements like this, training for our talented professional horticulturists, and best practice care for all Como’s beautiful exterior gardens. Each sponsorship package comes complete with a tea cup and tea, perfect for giving to your favorite garden devotee.
