bellevue is a very nice city with the water all around and what is becoming a very modern downtown. So, it is surprising to find a large park with older growth forest and beautifully landscaped gardens near the center of it all. This place is spectacular, it has hiking/seasonal events/flower gardens and usually for free. They ask for donations but... More

One of the most beautiful, peaceful and well tended botanical gardens we have ever been to. Loved the dahlia gardens! The suspension bridge over the ravine was amazing. One one the things I look for when visiting botanical gardens is both natural-looking (not formal), but yet well-tended. I hate gardens that have weeds sprouting up everywhere. It makes me anxious...

In town visiting family, this is a great garden and well manicured, couldn't believe it was free admission. There are alot of fuchsia plants that are gorgeous. The suspension bridge was fun and there are alot of trails through here that I missed. I would like to visit again in spring.

We enjoyed the gardens. Saw lots of people walking the paths. Beautiful hydrangeas were blooming. Don't forget to look up once in awhile. You will be surprised what's up there!

My colleague and I were looking for a place to for for a walk and hotel staff suggested this place. So we went and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful garden. 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.
