Washington Park Arboretum, Seattle Reviews

  • This is a must visit for parks in Seattle. I would rate it five star if it were not for the din from the traffic nearby. If you choose the mountain path through the center of the park you will not hear the traffic as much and you can enjoy the plant collection from around the world. The plants are carefully marked with easy to read signs. The other pluses are the smooth paths and good access with plenty of parking. The rhodenendrons and Camilla are in full bloom during mid spring. Enjoy!

  • This is one of the greatest jewels that the PNW has to offer. It shows a broad range of trees and plants that thrive in this area, and highlights collections from New Zealand, Chile, Japan and China. Regardless of the season, the arboretum has something to wow you and they have a great visitors center and docent lead tours. They have made some unreal changes in the last couple of years to make the arboretum more accessible. Every trip to the arboretum gives you a chance to explore and see something new. Yes, I love it and look forward to visiting with each changing season.

  • Beautiful park. There is an abundance of flora AND fauna. It is a great place to spend the day or go for a brisk walk. They have a nice visitor center with nice, knowledgeable people. I got some lovely tea, a neat plant and a rad sticker! Love this park. The seasons are all different and change the scenery.

  • The ambience/ setting is gorgeous! Landscaping is well maintained. There many nooks & crannies which give the impression of being small gardens withing the larger garden. The ambiance is one of peace & order. A great place for contemplation or reading or meditation.

  • Can't wait to try out the new bike trail. Saw a Dad walking hand in hand with toddler son. If it were a picture it would have got a million likes. There was this log natural barrier and the son walked over it. Awesome.
