  • 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.
