On the site of the garden used to be limestone deposits that attracted Robert Pim Butchart here. In 1888, he began production of cement. But by 1909, the entire stock of limestone had exhausted in her career, and Jenny Butchart, the wife of Robert Pim Butchart, decided to "enjoy" this area. The gardening work was entrusted to the Japanese lanse designer Isaburo Kishida. Robert was very proud of his wife and fully supported her by gathering birds from all over the world in the garden. Ducks, parrots, peacocks became an unheard of part of the garden. In 1921, the ennoblement of the garden was completed and it was called the "Flooded Garden".

But But Butcharts seemed to be small, to the already existing beautiful Japanese garden in 1926, the Italian Garden, located on the site of tennis courts, bloomed. In 1929, the Pink Garden was also added, equipped in the territory occupied by the previous garden. In 1939, reading Butcharts gave these gardens to grandson Jan Ross in honor of the 21st anniversary. Ross continued the development of the park.
