Become Involved in the Yuko-en Garden Success


Just come to Yuko-en to enjoy the peace and quiet, have a picnic, stroll the paths  – that is why it is here. We strive to maintain and provide a beautiful experience for all visitors!


Enjoy the festivals, art shows, organize your own workshop, rent the Villa for your parents’ wedding anniversary.


Yuko-en on the Elkhorn has been made possible through generous donations.   We still need the help of our community to keep Yuko-En to enjoy for generations ahead.  Donations are appreciated.

Please mail your donation to:

Yuko-En Official Kentucky Japan Friendship Garden
c/o Scott County City Hall
100 N. Court St.
Georgetown, KY 40324


Currently we are an all volunteer garden, every leaf and stone raked, every wheelbarrow of mulch has been done by a volunteer.

We would like to thank our donors, sponsors, tour guides and volunteers for their dedication and commitment to the Yuko-en.

If you are interested in sponsorship, donations, volunteering, and/or becoming a tour guide of the Yuko-en, please contact us.
