Gosford Sister City Association

gets ready for a busy year ahead!

After two years of disruption from COVID, the Gosford Sister City Association is pleased to announce a busy schedule for 2023 with two events planned to celebrate the close relationship between the Central Coast and Edogawa, Japan.

Edogawa Commemorative Garden, Gosford.

27 January 2023


BOTH the events planned to celebrate the close relationship between the Central Coast and Japan will take place at the Edogawa Commemorative Garden, one in March and the other in October.


“We were pleased to receive funding from Central Coast Council to deliver these community events. Plans are well underway for our first event on 26 March – with activities for all the family. Both events will showcase the Edogawa Commemorative Gardens that were gifted by Edogawa City to Gosford City in 1994.“


The garden is based on a traditional ‘shuyu’ (strolling style) garden, incorporating Japanese features. With meandering pathways, a roofed Japanese pavilion overlooking the Koi pond, raked dry stone garden and traditional Japanese teahouse, the garden offers a tranquil setting in which to relax and enjoy art and nature.


In addition, the Gosford Sister City Association will support a Youth Wing visit from Edogawa City, with Japanese students visiting the Central Coast in August.


The first Gosford Sister City Committee was established in 1985. Over the last 35 years, the group has worked to support and foster our Sister City relationships with Edogawa, Japan and Nitra, Slovakia.


The Gosford Sister City Association (GSCA) welcomes new members!
