Kubota Garden took over 60 years of vision to complete starting back in 1927 by immigrant Fujitaro Kubota and continued by his family. Mr. Fuitaro first bought 5 acres and now it is a lush 20 acre preserve. It is filled with a variety of flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest. The park is noteworthy for its design based on Japanese aesthetics. The Kubota Garden Foundation was founded as a non-profit corporation in 1988 to preserve the garden. Though, as another result it also functions to establish continued support for its upkeep. The Foundation is volunteer organization and is based on membership. The Foundation is supported by these members and funded with donations. In addition, the volunteer members also run a spring and fall plant sale to help bring in more funds.
