Washington Park Arboretum
Seattle, Washington


The Washington Park Arboretum is now one of several sites within the University of Washington Botanic Gardens. However, it is so much better established than the other sites, I still think of it as a separate entity. This 230 acre arboretum was founded in 1936. It was designed by the Olmstead Brothers landscape architecture firm and built by the WPA. Today the plant collection consists of more than 4,600 species. Major collections include hollies, maples, mountain ash and conifers.
