What a wonderful place for a nice walk amongst gorgeous and so loved plants taken care by the garden staff. If you like nature and flowers, definitely spend an hour or two in this well kept garden.

The Botanical Gardens have a new upscale urban feeling now that the new visitor center building has been completed. While the human scale of the facilities have been replaced by a modern architectural theme, the gardens retain their beauty and scale. A wonderful retreat any time of the year, the Christmas season is a must. But, do go anytime!

Unlike many botanical gardens, this place also has different trails (easy) to explore various areas of the park. Each one is unique. I was able to walk around for about an hour getting to know each of the attractions. It was a peaceful experience, being close to nature. It is very pretty. The volunteers were very friendly and discussed some... More

BBG, less than a mile from downtown Bellevue, is a world-class garden with well-maintained trails for walking or jogging. It is adjacent to Wilburton Hill Park and connects with other area trails as well. If you're here in December, don't miss the holiday light show!

This was a great way to spend an afternoon on vacation. It's a beautiful, tranquil setting with trails, gardens, water features and a fun bridge. Definitely worth a visit!

This is an urban oasis. The gardens are well planted and provide a place to stroll and forget that urbanization is just out there beyond the treeline. Spend a few minutes or an afternoon. Parking is free and it is a moment away from downtown Bellevue.Go for a jog. Pack a picnic lunch. Dogs are not welcome in the gardens... More

This place is a fun stop for friends, couples or families looking for something to do in Bellevue over the holidays. The "Holiday D'Lights" event each December fills the gardens with cute light displays that can occupy an hour or two with a nice, festive stroll and some fun photo ops.

Big buck are being spent. If they continue as they have in the past, this place will be on the equivalent to the Butchard Gardens in Victoria.

I love taking family and friends here when they are visiting because its so close to the city that we can just pop over and enjoy some of the wildlife. The trails are easy to walk. It does get very crowded on the nice days.
