“A beautiful way to spend a tranquil spring or summer day”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a quiet, beautiful place and well worth a visit. Hilly, green and seasonal. Reminiscent of a English garden. Great views! Absolutely no food or animals permitted. Allow at least a few hours

“NW Beauty at It's Finest”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Bloedel Reserve is one of the most beautiful gardens that I have ever seen. The grounds and simply spectacular. The walking trails are the gateway to a wonderful journey through some fantastic terrain to see the best of the Northwest. We visit here quite often even though we live on Bainbridge. It's a great place to take out of towners.

“Gorgeous gardens”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Beautiful landscaping including naturalistic meadow, Japanese tea house, "English manor". Lots of lovely plants and combos. Great opportunity to see mature plants in large scale setting. Don't bring kids unless they are unusually interesting in landscaping or horticulture, they'll be bored silly and likely to impair everyone's enjoyment
