Bloedel Reserve Bainbridge Island Reviews
Nature Walk in Paradise! Apr 12, 2008
Located on Bainbridge Island, the Bloedel Reserve is a nature lover's dream! The quiet and tranquil gardens are a glimpse into nature's paradise. Previously the residence of the Bloedel family, they established the non-profit Arbor Fund to manage the reserve after their passing. They wanted to ensure others could share in their love for nature and what they worked so hard to create.
We were lucky and got the last tour of the day on what was one of the most gorgeous days in Seattle! If you like hiking, nature walks, or photography, this is definitely a great way to spend a couple hours. The grounds were absolutely breathtaking (see accompanying blog entry for more photos).
They offer self-guided tours for $10 pp which take approximately 2 hours to complete. They are only open 10am-4pm on Wednesday - Sunday and the last reservation is at 2pm. Make sure to schedule ahead of time as they only allow a small number of people at each time slot to ensure everyone has the best experience possible.
