In 1942, Canadian citizens of Japanese heritage were forcibly resettled to the BC Interior. The New Denver Camp was home to over 1000 internees during the WWII years.
In 1990 the Kohan Reflection Garden, a Japanese style strolling garden, was created to honour the Japanese Canadian citizens who were interned there. It is a peaceful place to contemplate and enjoy the garden plantings and the natural beauty along the shores of Slocan Lake.
