A very nice park that has a water tower, reservoir, and gardens to explore. The water tower is a nice easy climb up the stairs and gives nice views of the park and downtown. The gardens are also quite nice and a good place to escape the noise of the city. It also must be a great place for a wedding based on all those we saw going on while visiting.

Went when there were only 3/5 buildings open. Still we saw plants and flowers we'd never seen before. I'm sure some of them were plants from the Northwest.. and we're from Texas. Still, we enjoyed ourselves. Nice attraction.

This is a wonderful park located at the north end of Capitol Hill. The conservatory is located on the north end of the park. Great collection of succulents and don't miss the dahlia garden just 100 yards out the door.

I love this conservatory. It is beautiful, smells wonderful, and introduces the visitor to really unusual and gorgeous plants. The trees just outside are a treat too.

Always wanted to get back to the conservatory after having been out the Seattle area for years. Doing the on-line dating I decided to meet on Capital Hill at the Conservatory. A great date. $4 each to get in, plenty of photo opportunities, chances to talk about plants, nature, your feminine side :) There are fabulous plants, old growths succulents, orchids, vines, water features in a greenhouse hot-house environment. All-in-all a very enjoyable meeting date.
