Bellevue Botanical Garden

Bellevue Botanical GardenThe Bellevue Botanical Garden has continuously evolved and become a top destination on the Eastside. It's no secret that the Pacific Northwest is passionate about gardening, and some of its most notable gardeners have put time and effort into making it a paradise where each step allows visitors to discover new plants and flowers as well as spectacular stonework, wood, and water features.

Recently, The Bellevue Botanical Garden opened The Ravine Experience, a soaring suspension bridge that gives a bird's-eye view of the varied topography, massive conifers, wildlife, and beautiful understory. The park also added a new visitor center and has expanded their programming. Classes and lectures are for every age, from the youngest patron to experienced master gardeners. It's encouraged that those interested sign up early to secure a spot.

Although the garden is located near Downtown Bellevue, it is also near the Woodridge neighborhood, Kelsey Creek Farm, and the prestigious International School. However, it draws visitors from all over Western Washington, and beyond.

Bellevue Botanical Garden is open daily from dawn until dusk and free to visit. It's located at 12001 Main Street. When tired of the bustle of the downtown area the gardens are an escape?a quiet oasis made up of native plants, quietly running waters, and serene trails. Find out more about Bellevue real estate.
