Landscapes - Fall 2014 - (Page LPplus14)

WHO DID DESIGN HATLEY PARK? DUE TO JOHN CHARLES OLMSTED'S refusal to design the gardens at Hatley Park, owner James Dunsmuir approached the Boston landscape architect firm of Brett and Hall. They were students of Olmsted and were working in BC on the design of the town sites of Prince George and Prince Rupert as part of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway expansion. Brett and Hall actually asked Olmsted to help with the design at Hatley, but JCO declined. Brett and Hall designed an Italian garden, croquet lawn, rose garden, tennis court and terrace gardens in the autumn of 1912. The other designer of the gardens at Hatley Park was Isaburo Kisihida, a Japanese garden designer from Yokohama who arrived in Victoria in 1907. Kishida created other Japanese style gardens including the Japanese garden at Butchart Gardens. The Japanese garden at Hatley Park is the oldest intact Japanese garden in Canada. Author Paul Allison, who is Supervisor of Gardens and Grounds for Royal Roads University ( and Hatley Park National Historical Site, has done considerable research on Isaburo Kishida. His work became a Knowledge network television documentary entitled Finding Kishida. 14 LANDSCAPES PAYSAGES
