Was told about the park where the conservatory is located at. The inside is pretty and well taken care of. Multiple varieties of plants were in bloom inside the Conservatory, it was amazing! The staff was really helpful answering my questions. After, was just to relax in the park :)

Here is a wonderland, really available to all, park and garden site. It has been available to all for the last 125 +/- years, and still a very lovely contemplative site. On beauty alone it should be seen. The Conservatory alone is divided into 5 areas filled with lush growth all so stunning it could bring a strong man to tears, You may use you imagination on what it did to me. Rare and unusual plants are the norm here. It is housed in a Victorian styled building designed by Olmsted architects, its both lovely and uplifting and accessible to all.

This is a great park. They have great views of the space needle, a museum and a really nice arboretum. There is generally plenty of parking and there are plenty of grassy areas to have a picnic.

An inspiring conservatory full of beautiful, interesting plants in a classic 1912 glasshouse. Bring a camera, or just stroll quietly about, enjoying yourself.
Free entrance the first Thursday and Saturday of the month.
And Volunteer Park is a lovely park, too, especially in the spring when the huge rhododendrons are in glorious bloom.

The drawing card for Volunteer Park is the Asian Art Museum, but it is closed for renovation, although I saw not activity indicating it was being worked on. The pond that surrounds the fountain and sculpture has been drained, leaving a rather bleak overlook. However, one can still take a photo of the Space Needle though the sculpture that looks like a tire, so if you're in the area, you could stop by. When we were there, everyone was from Kansas, but I think this was just a coincidence.
