Winter is a magical time to visit the Reserve. Leafless trees open views into unique vistas, and the low sun bathes the landscapes in a magical glow. Winter’s quietness allows you to get lost in thought as you traverse the trails. And remember, the Residence – the halfway point of the walk — is open to warm your fingers and toes before hitting the trails again.

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.
