An August Visit to the Woodland Park Rose Garden
Located east of the Woodland Park Zoo's south entrance
Intersection of North 50th Street and Fremont Avenue North
I featured the Woodland Park Rose Garden in a July blog article before I made my annual August visit to the garden. The Garden is at its peak in August and I always look forward to a photo shoot in this beautiful place. This blog article features my August 2012 photos. Enjoy.
Notes about the Garden:
The Woodland Park Rose Garden was completed in 1924. This 2.5 acre formal garden adjacent to the Woodland Park Zoo was created to display the incredible variety of roses that grow in Seattle's rose-friendly climate. From May through September, this garden is one of the most beautiful places in Seattle. It is filled with roses, shrubs, trees, topiary, and annuals.
The Rose Garden is an official test site for new hybrid rose varieties. The Rose Garden features over 280 rose varieties and over 5,000 individual plants. Over 200,000 guests visit the Rose Garden annually. There is no admission fee to the Rose Garden but there is a parking fee in the Zoo parking lots when the Zoo is open.
The Art Deco retaining wall is one of the Garden's highlights.
