The Bellevue Botanical Garden is an urban refuge, encompassing 53-acres of cultivated gardens, restored woodlands, and natural wetlands. The living collections showcase plants that thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Our demonstration of good garden design and horticulture techniques inspire visitors to create their own beautiful, healthy gardens. We provide a place of beauty, serenity, and learning for thousands of visitors each year. There are also many fun things to do throughout the seasons: plant sales, community celebrations, summer concerts, art exhibits and holiday light festivities.

Lots of walking trails, well kept garden and an opportunity to be closer to nature without traveling miles from Bellevue downtown. But not many locals know about this place:-). well at... More

There are several outstanding gardens, all maintained by volunteer gardening groups from Bellevue. The selection and arrangement of the plants is truly outstanding. They have done a marvelous job in the selection and arrangement of the plants, considering the textures and colors. Well maintained, clean. A very enjoyable half day visit. The perennial garden was outstanding in July. Many unusual... More

We walk around Bellevue Botanical Garden several times a year; during different seasons. It is always an enjoyable experience. The Park is well maintained, a good place to spend some quality time. We enjoy the different blooms and growth throughout the year!

We visit a number of times each year, esp during the Holidays when the gardens are all lit up. Only issue during holidays is crowds, expense, and parking.

We enjoyed the gift store in the new Visitor Center - very spacious and inviting. We took friends from out of state there to stroll through the "Lost Meadow", the Perennial Border, the Japanese Garden, the "water-less garden" and the Ravine Experience with its surprises of "little people gardens". Loved the huge maple trees, the fuchsia area, and the waterfalls... More

Came to the garden for the second time, first time in December, this time it looked more beautiful. But flowers bloomed so colorfully and the weather was perfect to pick which flower to take a picture off and even a humming bird. For us it was a nice stroll.

We popped into the garden not knowing quite what to expect. Let me say that it is a lovely, well thought out garden. There are many beautiful plants in bloom and many paths to wander. Also, a sign that you can download onto your smartphone and the list of flowers with pictures appears. Quite a nice feature. The best part...it... More

Such a relaxing place to walk around on a nice summer day. so many little trails to stroll through. They do a wonderful job with fitting in a lot of plants in a relatively small setting.

Botanical Garden is hidden in downtown Bellevue. It is famous for Christmas lights, but also beautiful in Spring and Summer. We sometimes go there after dinner for walk.
