We love walking through this garden which also has a forest trail complete with gnomes! The plants are pretty, so much better than our desert landscape, so lush and green. The fall colors were beautiful! Worth the detour!

I cannot believe in the middle of the city we have this treasure garden. It is big enough to do a long walk. It is quiet with a very interesting house as a coffee shop. It also has education center and winderful people.

This is an amazing place to reflect on anything you need to. It's quiet and with ample to see. Just take in your surroundings and enjoy. Also they have an AMAZING lighted garden at the holidays that EVERYONE should see at least once.

If you want a relaxing afternoon stroll head to the Bellevue Botanical Garden. It's so peaceful within the city. Parking is easy and the gift shop is inviting.
