Japanese Tea Garden at Monte Sano State Park, Huntsville, AL

May 15, 2022

On Saturday (May 14), we met up with Bruce’s friend in the picnic parking lot of Monte Sano State Park. We planned to go hiking in Monte Sano State Park.

This was our old stomping grounds, as we lived in Huntsville in the early 90’s and often went hiking on Monte Sano. Monte Sano is a small mountain on the edge of Huntsville, AL.

In the 90’s, Robert Black was putting in the Japanese Tea Garden. We would often talk to him while he worked. He would be planting bamboo or spreading moss. He even told us where he bought the bamboo. The garden was a labor of love for him.

Bruce and I wanted to see the tea garden we walked over to it from the parking lot and came in the back way. When we finished our hike, we walked through the front of the garden. The pictures start with the front of the garden, since that is how one would normally see the garden.

So much work and time has made the garden very lovely.

    1. When you are in the pagoda, you can see the red bridge through the one of the round windows. It didn’t really show in the picture, as there is plants in the way. You might be able to see it if you zoom in on the picture.
