Japanese Tea Garden

The Japanese Tea Garden park in San Antonio TX used to be an abandoned limestone quarry from a local cement company (the smokestack is still here). Back in 1919, it was converted into a city park with a Japanese theme (using convict labor).

Here are some photos from an afternoon in the park.
