Quiet park to relax!

Beautiful park with a tranquil surrounding to relax and enjoy a day in the out. Check the water tower in the same park.

The Conservatory at Volunteer Park is a lovely old fashioned building with different garden zones inside. Take your micro-lense to capture some amazing flowers and vegetation as well as a few bugs. Then take a walk to the wading pool where along the way there are many beautiful flowery shrubs and a great view through a concrete sculpture hole. Serious.... More

the park was great and so close to my daughters place. We climbed up the tower and saw great sights of the city.

A lovely conservatory with a range of plants. Easy entrance with self service ticketing, reasonable price. A great park to spend time and the number 10 stops right by the entrance.

The Conservatory at Volunteer Park is free to the public but PLEASE make a generous donation as it's future is uncertain due to funding. Rare and beautiful orchids bloom amidst lush tropical plants. There is a small gift shop attached. the Conservatory is a very short walk from the Asian Art Museum which in itself is highly recommended.

We walked to the park from Downtown, which was farther than our feet anticipated. But it was an interesting walk through Capitol Hill. I'm glad we did it and we got a different perspective of the city. We went to the park because it was designed by the same man who designed Highland Park in Rochester, NY (near where we... More

We arrived at the park around sunset, specifically to see the Black Sun sculpture. But we also found and climbed the water tower and followed a nature trail. There were people eating dinner, smoking, exercising and listening to music. It Was just a chill spot with a great view of the Space Needle and Downtown Seattle. There was no structured... More
