It’s free to walk the many trails of the enormous arboretum in any season. The park is open dawn to dusk. Be ready for some mud, winter and spring.

You can even visit Lake Washington. Take the Foster Island path. From its bridges you may see turtles and water birds, and all kinds of marsh plants.

There is a fenced Japanese garden for which there is a fee. It is fun to buy fish food and feed the giant koi lurking in the ponds.

You don’t live in the Seattle area? Does your area have a botanical garden?

IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF SEATTLE OR CANNOT MAKE IT TO THIS ARBORETUM, VISIT A GARDEN, CONSERVATORY, OR ARBORETUM NEAR YOU. TELL US WHERE YOU WENT IN THE COMMENTS!
