“If you're visiting the Rhodo Garden, leave time for the Bonsai too !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I'm pretty sure this was free admission. We were specifically visiting the Rhodo Garden and found this bonus exhibit to be delightful.

They are beautifully displayed, and include just enough information for the average person to appreciate them more.

“Exploring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

It is 8$ a person. I don't know if the price varies at all. They have over 22 acres and yet it was smaller than I expected once you walk around. Everything was beautiful, and it felt good to be out among nature, even though we were still pretty close to everything.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This is our second visit to the garden. We are bonsai enthusiasts so we enjoy looking at bonsai from all over. The trees are very old and have wonderful stories connected to them. If you are in the area and have an interest, it is well worth a visit.

“Wonderful Bonsai Collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Walking through this free outdoor display was highlight of our trip to Seattle area. Signage from main street could be improved but so worth the hunt. We loved it and will return if in area again.
