Beiming Yuan – Garden of Northern Brightness

Proposed Future Minneapolis – Harbin Sister City China Friendship Garden


The MN China Friendship Garden Society and the US-China Peoples Friendship Association-MN hope that someday they can create a China Garden at Washburn-Fair Oaks Park, across from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.  This would be a sister-city China Friendship Garden with Northern-style architecture.  Harbin has been the sister-city to the City of Minneapolis since 1992

Proposed:  First Traditional Northern-Style Garden in the United States

  • Future Sister-City project between City of Minneapolis and its sister-city Harbin, Heilongjiang, China
  • Possible future location at Washburn-Fair Oaks Park across from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts
  • Future partnering with Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board.
