Volunteer Park Conservatory, Seattle

Nature / Park
Explore greenhouses with environments ranging from jungle to desert when you visit Volunteer Park Conservatory. You'll tour five houses, each representing their own distinct environment. Walk through the bromeliads house to see an array of plants that attach themselves to surfaces like rocks or branches. Head to the fern house to see all types of ferns and carnivorous plants, like the Venus fly trap. Tropical plants reign at the palms house and the opposite is true at the cacti and succulent house, which promotes desert plant life. Don't miss the seasonal house, which rotates the plants it features based on the time of year.

  • It is always fun here but make sure to check the time before you go. They close early and I didn't get a chance to come back for their corpse flower bloom.
  • It was ok. Smelled good from the flowers. Wouldn't bother again.
  • A real gem. Such a neat spot. A great place even on a rainy Seattle day.
  • Some stunning succulents/cactus. It was neat to see what houseplants can grow into if given ideal conditions.
  • One of my favorite places on earth. They do a number of education and conservation things too, so make an effort to pay them. Beautiful, warm, oasis.
