This is a fairly large park. Walking, jogging, picnicking and bird watching. There are two exhibits inside the park that is worth the visit. The Water Tower is worth the stairs! Probably not quite as good of a view as the Space Needle but close! There is also an Asian Museum within the park.

This is one of the best parks in Seattle. The view is amazing. Bring a lunch and have a picnic, the landscape will thrill you as much as the view!

A nice place to wander through, beautiful setting for a first date. Probably the best day to venture here would be a rainy one since the entire building is made of glass. :)

I have never found a better quality conservatory in all my travels. The plants are in excellent condition, beautifully displayed. The structure is delightful and contains different climatic areas. Modest entry fee. Even I managed some beautiful

We have taken friends from across the country and around the world to this spectacular conservatory and all have been impressed with the flora and fauna, as well as diversity of offerings - from cactus to tropical sections.
