“Carl S English Gardens in Spring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Great escape from the city of Seattle. Like an oasis. The gardens are their best in the Spring.
Here is a link to a video of the Garden in bloom.

“Beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

When you walk through, the fragrance just stops you. One section smelled like jasmine, the other sweet like candy, lots of different floral fragrances. Beautiful trees and bushes from different places, with signs telling where they were from. Kind of a nice little arboretum. Adjacent to the locks, so it's a nice way to spend the afternoon.

“beautiful and great stroll”

Lovely to see all the beautiful flowers and trees. The grounds are kept up nicely and it's lovely to take a stroll. We walked through the gardens to get to the Ballard Docks.
