Bellevue Botanical Gardens
Seattle Tourist Attractions--Botanical Gardens
City of Bellevue
12001 Main Street
This 36 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. This is one of our highest rated attractions in the Seattle area.
The garden is lovely in all seasons. Spring and summer offer a dazzling display of foliage and flowers. My favorite season is late fall when the trees and plants change into the splendid reds, yellows, and oranges that make the gardens look like an impressionist painting.
