This 53 acre botanical garden is part of the city of Bellevue park system. The garden features formal gardens as well as walks through woods. This is a great place for viewing outstanding landscaping, photography, painting, strolling, and meditating. Bellevue Botanical Garden is one of our highest rated attractions in the Seattle area.
The garden is lovely in all seasons. These photos are from summer visits I have made to the garden.
The garden is composed of several specialized gardens that offer distinctively different plants and trees. The web site for the garden has a guide to the individual gardens.
Plan to spend an hour or two casually exploring the garden. The garden is spread over a large campus. Bring comfortable walking shoes for exploring the garden. The garden has a number of places to stop and rest your feet.
