You do not need a guided tour to enjoy the garden.
Visitors are welcome to visit the garden every day from dawn to dusk. Remember, no pets are allowed anywhere in the garden - service animals only are permitted. Please call (425) 452-2750 if you plan to bring a large group (more than ten) on a self-guided tour of the garden. If you are not scheduling a guided tour and you have a group arriving by bus, it is very important that you call or email us first and ask for bus parking directions, which will be mailed to you or provided by email for your bus driver.
