“Tacoma has so many little surprises!”

W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Just happened to drop in while at Wright park! Wow what a gem. Each time I have been here there is something new. If you Love plants and flowers this is the place to observe. It is very small but that just adds to the ambience. Very romantic and charming, even with little ones. When it is busy it does get a little crowded. Love the smells. Very unique. They also have a small gift shop for a take home reminder. I will be back many more times.

There is a sense of peace and tranquility here which is relaxing, making it a perfect place to unwind after a hectic day, week, shopping melee...think of going when you just need to be by yourself in the city and take time to hunt out the charming antique statuary tucked in among the exotic plants. Even on a rainy day, it is a beautiful place to go.

This is the tiniest botanical garden I have ever visited, but it is delightful and there are many interesting plants. Some of the plants seem exotic and others are just what you might find in your own back yard. The ladies in the gift shop did not seem to know much about the plants, but they were pleasant. Picture taking is permitted but not for professionals with tripods or for large groups such as wedding parties. A lovely stop away from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

The Conservatory has some great plants and provides the opportunity for interesting photos. It's much smaller than Seattle's Volunteer Conservatory and doesn't take long to view. However, it's right next to Wright Park, which is a nice family park with play areas, walking trails, picnic areas and a playground. In combination, it was a great way to spend a couple hours on a lovely afternoon.

This is one of the most beautiful and magical places. I wish I drew because I would be sitting on one of their benches with my drawing pad in hand...but instead I just walk very slowly, breathing in deeply of the fresh and full foliage air. Great little gift shop too.
