  • We decided to walk from downtown Seattle to these gardens. I do not recommend doing that! There is a train stop nearby that will cut two hours from your trip. The gardens were beautiful with the mix o...  more »
  • Lovely change of pace within the city. The use of water is wonderful and it has a calming and peaceful influence of stilling the restless mind. Koi fish and Japanese flora add to the authenticity. 
  • This Japanese garden is one of the most beautiful that I had to visit. the contrast of colors, those red tops of the trees, they make them unique and amazing. Lots of nature, plant diversity and contrast of colors. must-see for quiet to enjoy this magical place.

  • Beautiful collection of both native Northwest plants and Japanese Maples, curated to instill a sense of peace and serenity. Lovely in the Fall, Spring, or year-round! The koi pond is a big draw for kiddies and adults alike. The koi are so huge, they seem like something out of a Miyazaki movie! Admission is $6 for adults, cheaper for kids. Good place to go on a weekend to see the foliage changing in autumn :)
  • Just go. You can feed the koi during the warm part of the year, the flowers and plants are tranquil, and we once saw a crane looking at these massive koi, trying to figure out how to fit one in its mouth. There are turtles, ducks, and a pavilion that you can rest at. The paths are mostly handicap accessible, but there are a few where if you want to jump across stable flat rocks over a creek you totally can. Keep coming back. The garden changes throughout the year (closed for winter with a few days as exceptions). No tripods, picnics, or weddings. This place is for everyone to enjoy equally.
  • This place is a gem. It’s easy to love the walking paths, the quite, and cared for overall landscape. A wonderful place to photograph too. The occasional events and bookable outdoors is a favorite green space.
  • Really enjoyed this Japanese garden. If I were a resident or even if I had more opportunity to visit I would get the annual family pass. It's not much more than the price of one visit. The garden is beautiful and very well maintained. It was a very peaceful and relaxing visit. There are ducks and koi and turtles in the pond.
  • A really beautiful, albeit small, garden to visit. Admission is $5 for an adult, with $1 extra to feed the koi (which I would definitely recommend). The koi are absolutely massive and swarm wherever the food is. It was a really nice experience that I'd recommend to anyone in the area.
