We had a couple hours to kill before our flight out of SeaTac and googled attractions near the airport. We were shocked when we found a free garden to tour. When we got there, we were in awe. The gardens are gorgeous and so huge. The gardens don't seem to be in the safest neighborhood and there were a few... More

Enjoyed Kubota Garden. Enjoyable walk around the gardens. Very nice specimens of plants, shrubs, trees and flowers. Nice variety throughout the garden. Peaceful and enjoyable.

Sadly this garden is suffering from lack of funds for its' upkeep and is quite unkempt. It's a shame as the layout is good and with TLC and funding, it could be quite lovely. It's a half hour drive from downtown and probably not worth the trip.

A tucked away gem of a garden. I love good Japanese gardens and this one has it all. We visited on Mother's Day and there were LOTS of people, but we were still able to find quiet spots and views. The garden is beautifully maintained with little 'hidden' trails and pools/streams throughout. It seems you could see water from almost... More

I was so impressed with this garden that I decided to write my first review. Don't let the neighborhood discourage you, this beautiful park is well worth the trip. An 8 minute car ride from the museum of flight makes this the perfect place to spend the afternoon.

This Japanese garden is well maintained and a great place for photos. When we visited there was a path that lead all around the place, with little squirrels and bunnies running about. There was also a Quinceañera photo shoot going on which was fun to see. The downside was the park was in an area with nothing else... plan on... More

We enjoyed this Japanese styled garden and was surprised after living in the area that it even existed. The neighborhood it is located in isn't the best however...so don't leave valuables (sad) in your car. The best time to visit is either early to mid spring (rhodies and azaleas in bloom) or fall when the leaves start changing. Bring a... More
