The Arboretum is a hidden gem on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by UW and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres are a dynamic assortment of plants found nowhere else. Walk through the Arboretum to see plants from around the world, including a Japanese Garden. You can also rent a kayak or a canoe and paddle the sloughs of the Arboretum and the shore of Union Bay. Watch ducks and geese choose nesting sites in the spring, herons hunt, and hawks and songbirds fly overhead. Circle a beaver’s house, and stop for lunch under towering trees.
