The Garden of Gentle Breeze


Recently we met with Jay Gray, an interesting fellow who has built a fabulous Japanese Garden just on the outskirts of Corvallis. Jay’s “Garden of Gentle Breeze” is the largest (possibly the only) privately owned, publicly accessible Japanese Garden south of the Portland Japanese Garden.

The Garden is open for visitors and Jay hosts weddings and special events. There is a creek that runs through the property and an authentic “Japanese Gardener’s Cottage” which was constructed to be period correct and look just like one would look in Japan — 100 years ago.

Our conversation with Jay inspired us to revamp the Willamette Living Podcast. You can click to listen below!

We hope you enjoy our discussion with Jay, and encourage you to visit his tranquil, and fascinating garden.
