This is a hidden gem in Volunteer park. Recently renovated, it is very cool to be surrounded by tropical plants and flowers on a wet, gray Seattle day. And Volunteer Park is also a world famous urban oasis, designed by the Olmsted brothers. Go to...More

Really nice place for a stroll and view of the space needle. Has it's own charm, specially the area with the statue that is surrounded by trees. This area feels very private ( there were no people around) and has the view of the small...More

If you're looking for some time away from busy downtown Seattle, take a trip to Volunteer Park. There you will find well kept grounds, beautiful trees, nice walking paths, and the water tower. Climb the tower for terrific views, especially of Mt Rainer!

It is about a 2.3 mile walk from Pikes Market to Volunteer Park, but the walk through the old neighborhoods and the food and retail establishments was well worth the effort. The park is a wonderful place to walk around - and includes the old...More

This is such a tremendously lovely park. So many of the plants and trees are marked, so you know what you're looking at. I love the greenhouse. Depending on the time of year, it can be breathtaking. I'm fortunate to live in Seattle, so I...More

What a surprise to find this beautiful place. While Recuperating in a nursing home, the staff took some of the more able-bodied on an outing. It was a most uplifting trip to see these wonderful plants and flowers. I plan to return as plantings change...More

There's a great cafe cafe near the park called "The Volunteer Park Cafe". Cheap, friendly and delish.
