...and a wonderful walking setting. The visitor center personnel were very helpful and the arboretum has significant species that are worth seeing. It also has easy access by bus,

“Great if you've never been to a Japanese Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Average if you have been to others. Fall and spring are the best times to go. Combine with a canoe ride rented from the UW aquatic center

Gorgeous little peaceful spot :) The colors in the Japanese garden were amazing in October! Worth the $6 admission price :)

“My go to City Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Mother's day you will find me here smelling oohing and ahhing the rows of spring trees, rhodadendrums of many smells and colors, and beautiful spring blossoms. Winter walks have gorgeous berries and spring time lilacs create an atmosphere that makes you celebrate having the gift of smell. Pick a spot for lunch, read a book and eat, play with children, photography playground, plants to purchase. Seattle's place to take off your shoes and let your toes touch the earth.
