Bloedel Reserve

Bloedel Reserve

Bloedel Reserve is an experiential public garden and forest reserve, a mixed tapestry of woodlands, meadows, and landscaped gardens. With 150 acres to explore and 14 distinct landscapes, it’s a place to immerse yourself in nature. Plan to spend at least 2 hours on the Reserve.

During your visit, you’ll walk approximately 2 miles on well-maintained bark and gravel trails, and paved roads. For guests with limited mobility (ADA), a paved road gives you access to the highlights of the Reserve. The ADA route is approximately 2/3 of a mile round trip and has an incline on the return trip. Wheelchairs are available for use by guests.

To maintain our meticulous landscapes and the tranquility of the experience, no food or beverages (other than water), or pets are allowed on the trails. Ask the Gatehouse staff for information about nearby restaurants or city parks where you can enjoy a meal or snack.

Please be sure to review our Garden Etiquette before your visit.
