Activity Overview

The Kubota Garden is a Japanese garden located in Seattle, Washington. This beautiful 20-acre garden was created by Japanese landscaper Fujitaro Kubota in 1927 and was eventually sold to the city of Seattle in 1987, when it became a public park. In addition to being a gorgeous, peaceful natural attraction, the garden is also an important Japanese cultural site in the Seattle area. If you're looking for a unique park where you can spend some time as a family walking and enjoying the beauty of nature, then consider a visit to the Kubota Garden. You can walk over bridges, past waterfalls, and along creeks, all while surrounded by a variety of plants and trees.

Things to Do

  • Go on a self-guided tour of the garden! You can either pick up a map near the entrance to the garden or print one out from their website.
  • Explore the beautiful Spring Pond with its waters from local springs, the peaceful Stone Garden, and the Mountainside, which takes you on a short walk into the mountains past a stunning waterfall.
  • Don't miss the Lookout! From beneath its wooden umbrella, you'll be provided with a spectacular view of the garden below.

  • Bring along a camera - you'll want to take photos of the serene garden setting as well as its wildlife, including birds, turtles, and koi fish that are sure to catch the eye of young visitors.
