Foster Island and the Arboretum Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The City of Seattle and the University of Washington (UW) jointly run the Washington Park Arboretum, a 230-acre plant museum disguised as a nature corridor and a popular get-awayfrom-it-all spot. You don’t need to be a scholar of plant science to enjoy it; you just need a curious mind and an attentive eye.

This route takes you into the arboretum via a unique walk along the water, through a pair of artificial islets. At the heart of your walk are two beautifully meditative areas, an elaborate Japanese garden and an open meadow honoring the Pacific Rim’s diverse flora."
