Wonderful family friendly adventure. All three of our kiddos (ranging in age from 3 to 10) thoroughly enjoyed the loop. Depending on your mood and interest this is a space you could do in one hour, or stay four. Each of the gardens are all very well marked, and the colorful descriptive markers regarding native plants, birds and other info held our kids’ interest. The path and grounds are extremely will maintained and clean, with benches throughout. Stroller friendly.

The Willburton Hill trails take some navigation or a map. The city's PDF map has not been updated and doesn't reflect the full amount of trail available. Otherwise this is an ideal light walk on a forested area with kids. You can bring a dog to Willburton but not the Botanical Gardens. Hills are ironically very low-grade. I guess the name comes from the location. The little suspension bridge over the ravine is really fun and this park is filled with birds and flowers. There are forested areas, park walks, gravel, dirt, and paved walks. Four stars only due to lack of markings. Everything else makes this one of Bellevue's best urban trails.

Earth Day 50 (4/22/20) - nice, physically-distanced, circuit on the spacious trails of the Bellevue Botanical Garden. Thank you for staying open, . . . vs. the complete closures of thousands of miles of trails on nearby federal, state and county lands.

Sunday morning, April 19, 2020 terrible, terrible intended 1.8 mile circuit of the outside-most perimeter trails ended up being over 5 miles in-and-out and around-and-about completely lost in the interior trails because, compared to numerous directional posts, benches, "keep-on-trail" signs, bird identifications, etc. all over the place, there's not a single map post such as not only DNR thoughtfully posts on State trails but are also even found at the zoos so, though you may know where you're going by the directional signs, unless you have your AllTrails tracker on, you won't have any idea of where you are. In fact, if it wasn't for AllTrails, I'd probably still be there. Thank you. In addition, maybe the staff who roam the trails making sure everyone stays on them could carry along a grabber to pick up more than a dozen discarded tissues, dog poop bags, facial masks, etc. along the way this Sunday morning too.

Hiked with my daughters. Beautiful sunny afternoon. We walked around the garden and took lots of pictures with the beautiful flowers, then start the trail. We ended up with over 3 miles.. love how the trail goes into the woods and end up around the baseball field. Didn’t expect to be into a wooded area. Will visit again. It’s a family friendly trail.

Really tranquil place for a solo run, even this time of year. Dogs not allowed per signage, not sure if it’s enforced through. LOTS of people setup with camera equipment for pictures that made the paths a little crowded.

1/29/2017 (Sunday) - This is the quietest season of the botanical garden, because the holidays and the light show are over, and flowers have not bloomed yet. A loop in this woody park may be over 2 miles for an hour's easy walk, very good for elderlies and kids.
