“Nice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

The park looks well taken care of, it has the Seattle Asian Art Museum in the surrounding, and it's close to bus stops.

“Exotic Travel at Your Backdoor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

Located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, this wonderful conservatory is a perfect place to transport yourself to warmer climes on a cold, gray Northwest day. The superb variety colorful, thriving plants come from many parts of the world. I'm especially drawn to the numerous orchids, fuchsias, and hydrangeas, but there is also a cactus "wing" of the conservatory, as well as an interesting carnivorous plant area. Despite the fact that another reviewer said "..it costs nothing!", I strongly recommend leaving a donation so that we can continue to enjoy this historical Seattle gem.
