Very well kept and near the Asian Art Museum. Museum now going through a face lift, but the park is great for other activities. The conservatory is heavenly. Wonderful scents, and exotic plants. Well curated. Good for a day out.

This is a great park. They have great views of the space needle, a museum and a really nice arboretum. There is generally plenty of parking and there are plenty of grassy areas to have a picnic.

An inspiring conservatory full of beautiful, interesting plants in a classic 1912 glasshouse. Bring a camera, or just stroll quietly about, enjoying yourself. Free entrance the first Thursday and Saturday of the month. And Volunteer Park is a lovely park, too, especially in the spring...More
