The University of Washington Botanic Gardens was established in 2005 to unite the gardens and programs of the Washington Park Arboretum (established in 1934) and the UW Center for Urban Horticulture (established in 1984). As part of the UW's School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and College of the Environment, UW Botanic Gardens is an international hub for plant science and ecosystem research, teaching, and stewardship. The nationally renowned living plant collection contains over 10,000 specimens. It's located around the shoreline of Union Bay on Lake Washington in Seattle. If you’re looking for a place to walk, study, express your artistic talents, purchase a nature-inspired gift, or schedule a meeting or wedding, we invite you to visit both locations. You’ll find many opportunities for individual or group enjoyment and learning, as well as guided tours, classes and other programs.
