“Very nice pricey walk”

Well I love the design of the gardens, especially the Japanese area but what a 'donation' to be able to appreciate it. There are a few free places I would walk but if you are into gardens you would appreciate it.

Manicured walking paths through beautiful open spaces. A fantastic wooded area and great japanese gardens.

Plan to stay a few hours at the Reserve. Designer Richard Hagg used many Japanese design features throughout the grounds. The mature trees can be viewed in many seasons. Plan for rain.

We took the 10:30 ferry to Bainbridge and drove out to Bloedel. We were told to plan on a 2 hour walk. We strolled leisurely and took just under 90 minutes. We all had different favorites. I loved the smell of pine as we left the field area and went into the forrested area. One loved the weeping willow. My husband loved the board walk. It made you slow down and look around. Very peaceful and amazingly well tended.

Beautiful place to explore. Try and spend at least 4 hours here and you won't be disappointed. Lovely paths. Abundant plants.
