A few Seattle parks provide a glimpse of the way it was by harboring the last stands of the thick forest that once covered the region. The Washington Park Arboretum is a similar sanctuary, instead featuring exotic plant life from around the world. Rather than a trip back in time, the Arboretum allows visitors to take a walk to all corners of the Earth via a peaceful system of trails through its carefully manicured gardens and groves.
