When was the last time you went to the Seattle Japanese Garden in the Washington Park Arboretum? The 3.5-acre Japanese-style garden opened in June of 1960. Anchored by a large central pond, walking paths lead visitors through various flora and fauna. Visiting the garden can be a peaceful and calming experience.

Admission ranges from $6-$10, but the garden has a FREE day on the first Thursday of every month. On First Thursdays, entry to the garden is free all day, and usually the garden also programs special events, such as Butoh performances. Check their calendar for what’s going on this month.

We like to stop by every few months to see how the garden shifts and changes with the seasons. If you need a little fuel for your horticultural visit, stop by Belle Epicurean bakery for coffee and a French-style pastry.
