The winter garden is absolutely deserving a visit during spring.

This is a beautiful park I'll definitely come back to. However, the trails are not marked well and the trail map is fairly useless. With construction going on a lot of the side trails are closed. But it is easy to figure out which way you're going. Good for walking and exploring the local flora.

Simply one of my family's favorite places to walk in Seattle. Well maintained trails and great for teaching kids about plants. Do wish there was more signage for individual specimens.
