Washington Park Arboretum Professional Review and Guide

"The Washington Park Arboretum means a lot of things to a lot of different people. Thousands of Seattle residents consider it their personal flower garden. In the springtime, lots of University of Washington students grab a book and a tree and adopt it as a secluded study hall. It is an outdoor studio for artists and nature photographers.

It features a favorite fishing hole and a canoe route through the lily pads. Dates of the annual plant and bulb sales are marked on gardeners’ calendars. It is everybody’s favorite walk. Special attractions: A waterfront trail over Marsh and Foster Islands, arboretum, Japanese Garden, and Museum of History and Industry."

A jewel in the city. The Arboretum offers so much. Azalea way is spectacular in spring when the blossoms come out, but the towering deciduous trees are just as spectacular when their leaves turn in Autumn. The Foster Island trail offers a wonderful stroll through one of the most interesting habitats around. I grew up taking walks down the Foster Island Trail and it remains my favorite place to visit on crisp October days.
