Woodland Park Rose 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 a show-stopper.  It is filled with roses, shrubs, trees, topiary, and annuals.  The garden's walking paths take you on splendid vistas full of flowers.  The garden's beauty makes it a really popular place for weddings.  Accenting the lovely flowers and foliage is a gazebo, a beautiful water fountain, a long pond, and an art deco retaining wall.

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.

I rate the Rose Garden as one of the most beautiful places in the Seattle area in the summer. This lovely oasis of floral color is incredibly relaxing and meditative.  Allow yourself a little while to just stroll around and savor the wide diversity of roses and other plants that are displayed so well.
