  • Most certainly on the top of your list this is a must see in Seattle. I could have stayed all day. It just flows from one beautiful room of art to the next! 
  • My wife and I love taking walks in the Botanical Garden in Bellevue...especially in the Spring time when new buds are popping and the place comes alive. We enjoy most anytime in the garden for quiet s...  more »
  • We visited the garden last June, all the plants were in bloom, and it was beautiful. We revisited it between Christmas and the new year in the evening and the plants with multicolored garlands illuminations created a real fairyland. A must do if you are there at this time.

  • A very well maintained garden located right in the city. One can tell by the quality of its existence, the amount of work their volunteers, management & visitors must be putting in! Having seen such a man-made endeavor getting such high form of care & respect by day to day visitors has been a good experience. Totally worth one's time!
  • Beautiful oasis very close to downtown Bellevue. They have nice trails, Japanese style gardens, a cafe and gift store inside. The yao garden and the ravine are worth stopping by. Entry is free for all!
  • Nice place for an easy hike with kids. There is a scavenger hunt for kids to do. Don't miss the suspension bridge. If you play pokemon go, there are a few poke stops and the day we went Electabuzz was spawning every few minutes.
  • I visited here once late 2015, and loved the lighting they did in the Garden. Had visited with friends and family and kids loved the area too. A must see lighting show. Parking is a pain, but they do have $5 parking available (gets full real quick).
  • Perfect place for a quiet place to walk. The suspension bridge and different garden habitats along with flowers make it a perfect place to go on a walk in the lunch hour (its close to downtown). Plus, its free.
