Novi Sad might get a Japanese garden, the first of its kind in Serbia.
The Novi Sad authorities met with the Japanese ambassador who expressed the Embassy’s readiness to help with creating a new green oasis in the city, located between Novi Sad’s neighbourhoods of Detelinara and Novo Naselje, that would be modelled after traditional gardens in Japan.
According to Mayor Milos Vucevic, the Japanese Embassy is very interested in supporting the entire project financially, in addition to helping with the development.
This was also confirmed by public utility company Gradsko Zelenilo which said that their teams had already commenced the works.
Gradsko Zelenilo has also launched a tender for the acquisition of equipment for the garden which will be located in the area surrounded by Vojvoda Stepa Blvd, Evropa Blvd, Rasa Radujkov Street and Milan Jesic Ibro Street.

The City Administration Department, regulating issues relating to construction land, has also launched the tender for drafting of technical documentation for the development of this garden. The documentation includes geo-mechanical explorations, geodetic works, acquiring a building permit, and drafting the documents for power installations and public lighting at the garden.
The garden area will span 3.5 hectares of land and have 10 entrances, with the main one especially decorated. The central section will feature a floral area, surrounded by the main promenade. The pastry shop will be located in the western section of the garden and the children’s playground will be located next to it.
The southern side will feature a bocce court and a bench with a sunshade, and the central section will be an area for concerts, exhibits and various educational and entertainment workshops. The garden will also feature a fountain, sprinklers and two drinking fountains.
Footpaths will surround the garden, and a significant number of parking spaces will also be provided.
