Seattle Chinese Garden is now dog-friendly

information from the Seattle Chinese Garden

The Garden gates are now open to dogs with their two-footed friends, even those lacking this pair’s perfect garden names. Note that Willow in the photo above is on a leash. The Garden’s big field to the north of "Knowing the Spring Courtyard" is great for walking dogs, but also is enjoyed by children (and many other visitors). Please bring plastic baggies for you know what. The adjacent South Seattle Community College Arboretum also is a lovely place to extend your walk.

Volunteers Welcome Too! Chinese Garden manager Bob Seely welcomes volunteers to help with mulching, pruning, thinning, and other winter projects. Dates and hours are flexible. Please contact Bob at 206.849.4055 (cell) or or
