The UW Botanic Gardens

The University of Washington Botanic Gardens was established in 2005 to unite the gardens and programs of the Washington Park Arboretum and the Center for Urban Horticulture. This nationally renowned plant collection contains over 10,000 specimens.

The Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Its 230 acres offer a dynamic assortment of plants.

Around the Center for Urban Horticulture you'll find demonstration gardens. The Center's Union Bay Natural Area is a public space, natural restoration laboratory and an important wildlife habitat on Lake Washington.
