On the grounds of the Weyerhauser Headquarters in Federal Way this is a must see if you like bonsai trees. Most of the trees in the collection range from 30 to 60 years under cultivation and some older trees. They are beautifully displayed and identified as to artist, souce of tree and time in cultivation as well as other information... More

When he was alive, my father used to create bonsai. When I found there was an extensive collection, I just had to go see it. I was not disappointed. The age of some of these trees astounded me. I only wish the bonsai garden had been larger because I wanted to see more!

A good collection of bonsai both you and old. Well presented with most trees outside. Free entrance but donations are welcome. We chatted to a member of staff who was knowledgable. What a joy to get away from the hustle and bustle of a lively city.

I've been in the fall and in the dead of winter so far, and both times its been great. The grounds are quiet and well maintained, and it's free! Don't go when it's raining though, as there aren't really any covered areas to stand under. Some of the trees are 100's of years old. We had a lot of fun... More

It's off the beaten path, but you can see beautiful mature trees in miniature, and well taken care of. Also, a paid Rhododendron exhibit. Sponsored by Weyerhauser.

This free collection of bonsai is very well presented and just off of I5. The rhododendron garden adjacent has an admission charge, but the bonsai are free.

Well worth the visit. So e of these trees have been alive for centuries. Amazing, beautiful setting, each masterpiece is displayed to show its magnificence. There were trees that resembled a couple dancing... Truly one of the very best places I have visited . I will go back again..go early.. All of these gardens are most beautiful. A little weird...

Bring walking shoes, need to walk gravel path to get to Bonsai collection from parking lots. Took lots of photos and info provided on collection is... More

Beautiful, amazing collection. Very well maintained with good access to all trees. Just 10 minutes from SeaTac, And it's free. There is also Azalea garden there that is also nicely done (that one isn't free though)

This is the best exhibit of Bonsai art we have ever seen. And, it is an outdoor display in an efficient informative arrangement. Lots of great info on each tree. Well done!
