The Bellevue Botanical Garden has no visitor fee, and is open every day of the year. Please consider supporting the Garden by making a donation. We welcome donations of any size.
Each year, we welcome 400,000 visitors to the Garden. They come to enjoy the beauty, learn new skills, and connect with friends and family. You can visit as often as you’d like, bring as many guests as you wish, and enjoy a wonderful living museum with a wide variety of gardens to explore.
The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society works in partnership with the City of Bellevue to achieve the Garden’s mission. Our role is to raise funds, support the Garden’s physical growth and development, and provide a broad range of programs and events designed to engage, inspire and inform Garden visitors.
We rely on donations, memberships, special events and sponsorships to support the free and low-cost educational programs for children and adults that enrich our community. Your donations provide critical funds to ensure that these programs can continue.
The Bellevue Botanical Garden Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and donations are tax-deductible. Our Tax ID# is 91-1333659
