Strolls Enhance Well-Being in Washington Gardens

You can’t ignore the spellbinding beauty that Japanese gardens bring to Washington state. Merging with natural vegetation gardens like Nishinomiya in Spokane and Highline Garden in SeaTac are hidden gems of flowers, trees, and stone that balance the senses while the sound of soothing water falls calms the mind.

For a truly Renaissance design, Duncan Gardens at Manito Park in Spokane proffers manicured walkways among artfully appointed flower beds. Six colorful gardens showcase brilliant variety including hibiscus, hydrangeas and miniature roses set against sculptures, fountains, and trimmed evergreen hedges.

Closer to the sea-side, Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island is just a short ferry ride from Seattle. This 150-acre pristine reserve began as a project by the timber-industry giant Prentice Boedle when he and wife, Virginia merged native fauna with newly introduced plant species and a variety of water ways. Today the non-profit park is open to the public and includes restorative strolls, name ‘Strolls for Well-Being’, throughout the gardens.
