A great city escape, expansive property with Pacific Northwestern plants, impressive Japanese Garden, Suspension Bridge and walking trails. Pretty all times of the year, even in the rain. Will be back in December for the lights.

I enjoyed botanical garden in fall and spring. It's a very popular place for photography, walking around and talking with friends and family in a great quiet peaceful place. Don't miss it if you're in Bellevue in spring or fall.
