The gardens/reserve are amazing, It is a 2 mile stroll though changing natural beauty.
What a tranquil and inspiring place to spend 2 to 3 hours, the way they have blended dying trees with new, the ponds are stunning, do not forget to walk through the house and visit the Japanese garden.
We came away so relaxed and inspired with ideas for our garden!

Ranks up there w other world class gardens in America (Fairchild, Winterthur, Longwood)! Especially serene, peaceful, loved the NW flavor of this garden. Beautifully placed curvaceous paths w pond, streams, flowers, Moss garden, terrific Japanese garden. So, so lovely. Poetry on natural wood plaques a great touch.
Very easy to catch the bus from the ferry port. Would love to return again

A beautiful and relaxing stroll through indigenous as well as specially designed garden attractions. An abundance of nature-inspired poetry to accompany and enjoy on your stroll. An array of colors as spring flowers greeted the change in seasons. There are several invitations to sit and reflect along the easy path. Certainly would recommend this hidden treasure! Adults certainly would appreciate the grounds, some children and teens may, if they are accustomed to such nature walks, others may balk at the idea.

We have participated in their Strolls For Wellness program which gave us a whole new appreciation for this local landmark. Go with friends or on your own. Wondrous in every season.

Always good, nature doesn’t get any better here in the US. The founders transformed natural forest to harmonize the environment with beautiful gardens and landscapes.

The moss garden glowed.

Enjoy the poetry in the garden.
