Welcome To Yogananda Gardens Northwest

Thank you for coming to pay us a visit!

The creation of lovely park-like Gardens for contemplation and meditation is in the process of being launched at Ananda in Laurelwood Valley, Oregon.  It is being created to honor the great Yoga Master, Paramhansa Yogananda.  It will feature secluded areas of inspiring shrines and quiet nooks, as well as lawn areas surrounded by colorful flowers and ornamental plantings where musical events will be held on summer evenings.

Let us tell you about our plans for the park
