I grew up just a few blocks from these gardens and have watched them gow over the past 40 years. It is truly a hidden gem.

This is a beautiful, less formal Japanese garden and so enjoyable! Kids love it too! Nice place to appreciate our life.

I went here to take some pictures with my new camera, the park was beautiful, ponds, waterfalls, flowers, tunnels and more. This is not a place to take kids to play, this is a quite park with no playground. Ground can be muddy in places.

Kubota Garden is a lovely Japanese garden in a nice neighborhood. We stopped here when we saw the sign along the hectic I- 5 and were pleasantly surprised by the place. It was a quiet sanctuary. And well worth the walk.

This is one of those places where you want to see it in all seasons. Spring is covered with rhodies, fall is a mass of colors as the leaves turn. Summer is lush and I haven't done winter yet.

I'm amazed that this park isn't more well-known by Seattle residents -- it's gorgeous, quiet, never crowded, with different views every season. I visit frequently.

I love this garden. The vistas are incredible. So few people seem to know about it, and it's tucked away in a neighborhood on the way to Renton. I want to drag all my friends there. I think it's more beautiful than the Japanese Garden at the Arboretum, if one wants to compare (which really, I shouldn't). Check it out!

This is a work of love and art, celebrating nature. space, ease and beauty. The gift of this family in nature, time and vision is unmeasurable. Children can run and enjoy natural beauty. All can appreciate such space and delight.

These gardens and park are a hidden gem in Seattle's south side. Beautifully manicured, calming paths and bridges as well as a waterfall make it a perfect place for a solitary walk, or to bring children in an open space safety zone of beauty.

This garden is outstanding any time of year. Our family visited during the winter once and with a little snow it was outstanding. I have taken folks there for photography classes and to test cameras. Wonderful experience!
