Washington Park Arboretum

Nestled in the Northeast corner of Seattle, just South of the University District, lies the lush, green expanse of Washington Park Arboretum. The park spans 230 acres and is home to more than 20,000 trees, vines, and shrubs, 139 of which are endangered species, according to the arboretum's website.
Visitors can find numerous hiking trails throughout the park. Washington Park Arboretum is open to the public every day. Fully guided walking tours are available, and are given at no charge on the first and third Sunday of each month. The arboretum is also home to Seattle's Japanese Garden. Admission to the garden is $5.00, and pets are not permitted in the garden.
Washington Park Arboretum is accessible via car or public transportation, specifically bus route 11. For more information, you can visit the arboretum's website.
