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

We are closed on Thanksgiving Day, but will be ready to greet you on Friday. The Reserve is a wonderful place to entertain out-of-town guests and to walk-off that extra serving of pumpkin pie!

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.
