The Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle is just across the canal from the University of Washington & Husky stadium. This is such a large, beautiful park filled with so many varieties of flowers & plants.There are over 230 acres of gardens, natural areas & wetlands. Miles & miles of trails you can walk, run or bike (although bikes are only allowed on the paved trails). Before you visit, you may want to download or screenshot a picture of the map of all the trails as it can be a bit of a maze of trying to figure out where to go as you explore all around the Arboretum.
