The park is a very nice and unique park to go to, it is in the quieter part of the city, so some might like that feel.

It’s not a large conservatory but the facilities are gorgeous and well worth the $4 entry fee. We really had a lovely experience. I loves the Cactus room!

The park is a pleasant place to slow down the pace of the busy city. Lots to see and do, or just relax. We were pleased that we ventured there.

Lovely park. Quite a historical place to visit. Enjoy the view from the Water Tower. Hopefully the sun is out when you're here.

Glorious gardens in Seattle in the Capitol Hill area near Volunteer Park. The Northwest is famous for the weather supporting these fabulous gardens.

There are lots of orchids, succulents and cactus here. It feels like visiting a spa for plants. The architecture of the building is unique. It feels like it belongs in a older century. A great value for the price of entry.

There's a great cafe cafe near the park called "The Volunteer Park Cafe". Cheap, friendly and delish.
