The Arboretum is a welcome oasis on the shores of Lake Washington. Jointly managed by the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and the City of Seattle, its 230 acres contain a dynamic assortment of plants, some found nowhere else in the Northwest. Take a walk through the Arboretum and discover this beautiful living collection. The Graham Visitors Center contains an information desk, and a gift shop managed by the Arboretum Foundation. The Japanese Garden, located at the south end of the Arboretum has an entrance fee and is managed by the City of Seattle. The waterfront of the Washington Park Arboretum provides excellent opportunity for recreation and exploration in non-motorized boats. Boaters can circumnavigate Foster Island and explore small inlets off of Union Bay of Lake Washington. Canoes, kayaks, and similar boats can be launched from a small landing along Foster Island Road. There are also a couple nearby boat rental facilities that rent canoes, kayaks and rowboats to the general public.
