Bloedel Reserve no longer takes reservations. Visit any time during our regular hours.

Sorry, pets are not allowed on the grounds, and must not be left in cars in the parking lot. Service animals are welcome.

HAPPENING NOW: A walk at Bloedel in late winter / early spring is like going on a treasure hunt–you never know what you’ll discover around the corner or down the path. Blooming now are: camellias, snow drops, primroses, hellebores and witch hazels. It seems like every week something new begins to bloom, making each visit different from the next.

Our Mission

The Bloedel Reserve in Bainbridge Island, Washington is an internationally renowned public garden and forest preserve. The founder’s vision was “to provide refreshment and tranquility in the presence of natural beauty,” and the Reserve’s mission is to “enrich people’s lives through a premier public garden of natural and designed Pacific Northwest landscapes.”

The Reserve’s 150 acres are a unique blend of natural woodlands and beautifully landscaped gardens, including a Japanese Garden, a Moss Garden, a Reflection Pool and the Bloedels’ former estate home.  We invite you to visit this Northwest treasure.
