Caution!! Car Prowl Area!!! We parked our car in the first row today without any valuables in sight around mid-morning. When we returned after walking around the garden our car's lock was bent out of shape and the lock was no longer functional. It appears someone jammed a screwdriver and broke the lock's pins. No valuables were stolen, but the lock will be a bit pricey to repair.

As stated on the website FAQ please make sure to take all belongings with you. This was very unexpected and hopefully some security can be placed during daytime in future.

Be ready for some healthy walking as you view the myriad of plants and flowers in this exceptional botanical garden. The variety of vegetation gives an excellent understanding of what grows in the Northwest. Lots of info and fun trails. A good way to spend a morning.

Family was not listed among the options for type of visit, however my daughter and I went to BBG for a few hours and had a great time! Just a great place to explore and you could easily spend all day there.
The suspension bridge was the best part for me, I think it brought out the kid in me.
It's free and a great place for family members to explore. I'll be back...

This beautiful botanical garden is free and a great way to spend a few hours wandering the garden pathways with your family or friends. The coffee shop looked cute, but I didn't have time to check it out. Maybe next time!

Having panned the Bellevue Botanical Garden as of my visit there in 2016, five years have passed, and a recent visit there was so very heartwarming. These Botanical Gardens are finally well worth the trip and I can only say bravo to all the botanists and planters involved. So many interesting plants, more walkways, larger Alpine garden, and lots of things in bloom! I'm eager to go again! So, everyone please go out to Bellevue and support their fine program!!

One great thing about this garden is that you can spend one hour, or three hours, it's up to your interest and activity level. It's rewarding no matter how much time you have to make the visit.

Great gardens with both formal planting & wider natural areas. Small Japanese garden. Tap & discover plant identification on the phone . Small onsite shop with separate cafe. Free parking.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon and there was plenty of free parking. I have visited better botanical gardens, but this one was nice as well. Very peaceful and pretty. Unfortunately, the Japanese garden was closed. If you're in the area, it's worth a visit.

We visited at the end of May, when the rhododendrons were in full bloom. The park and parking is free except for the Japanese Garden which was nice but small.
