“Peace among the chaos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

The east side has become pretty chaotic over the last 10 years. Amid the hustle and bustle is the BBG. Most of the year it has gorgeous blooms, but even more beautiful, I think, is the plethora of trees from all over that makes it so unique. The light displays at holiday time are wonderful!

“Beautiful Christmas Lights!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

I went here for the Christmas light show that they do every year. Considering how little it costs to get in, it really is quite impressive. I will definitely try and make it during the summer months to see everything in bloom!

“Good place for a walk in the park, pretty much any day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Great place in the spring and fall, pretty good any time. There are a variety of trails available, from short to medium, all of them moderately flat except for a few stairs if you take a shortcut. Good for exercise, meditation, or just to go sit in the Japanese Garden part.

“Still getting better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

This little jewel continues to blossom in the heart of Bellevue. The combination of city funding and volunteer labor produces wonderful plantings, several kinds of gardens (including alpine and Asian) and lovely wooded trails.
