Bellevue Botanical Garden is an urban refuge, encompassing 53-acres of cultivated gardens, restored woodlands, and natural wetlands. The living collections showcase plants that thrive in the Pacific Northwest. Garden highlights include the Northwest Perennial Alliance border, a waterwise garden, Japanese garden, alpine rock garden and summer displays of dahlias and fuchsias. The Garden is open daily, including holidays, from dawn until dusk. Admission is free.
The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society recruits and trains volunteer docents to guide scheduled tours of the Bellevue Botanical Garden. Docent-guided tours are offered every Saturday and Sunday, April through October. Reservations are not required. Tours are free; $5 suggested donations.
