Very well kept and near the Asian Art Museum. Museum now going through a face lift, but the park is great for other activities.
The conservatory is heavenly. Wonderful scents, and exotic plants. Well curated. Good for a day out.

A tranquil oasis of beautiful flora amidst the social and cultural hub bub that is Seattle. Small and intimate, plant lovers will appreciate the horticultural expertise on display here. Less botanically inclined will surely appreciate the beauty. Pack a picnic and blanket and enjoy adjacent Volunteer Park, then wander over to the Asian Art Museum for some cultural dessert.

Be sure to climb the water tower down the hill if you stop here (lots of stairs!). Very lovely site- conservatory, ponds, tower.

I was so excited to visit the Conservatory in Volunteer Park. Whenever I come to Seattle I am always in awe of the beautiful flowers in and around the city, so I expected the Conservatory to be extraordinary. I must say that I was a bit disappointed. I have visited the conservatory in Lincoln Park (Chicago) many times and the Volunteer Park Conservatory didn't compare in the least. It costs $4 for an adult day pass and there are really only 4 rooms and a gift shop - it was a tenth of the size of the one in Chicago and the one in Chicago is free. But, I did pay the admission and tour. Beautiful flowers, but not what expected. The exterior of the building and the grounds and flowers surrounding the Conservatory are lovely.

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 :)
