HAPPENING NOW: Rhododendrons are in full splendor, with some blossoms larger than your head. The lawns are lush and green and the candelabra primrose provide a pop of magenta against the shade of the birch trees.  And oh my the skunk cabbages! These prehistoric-looking plants are a feast for the eyes.

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.
