Kubota Garden Seattle

by

Kubota Garden in South Seattle is a beautiful, 20 acre park.  This park is a favorite destination for wedding parties looking for a natural landscape.  One can follow the many paths and get lost in the scenery as you make your way through the stunning vegetation, calm pools and trickling waterfalls.  More information can be found at http://www.kubotagarden.org/

Kubota Garden Waterfall

One of the many little waterfalls in this great park.  Although this water fall is not very big, the little path that goes over the fall and the amazing fall color leaves that decorate the small stream add a beautiful contrast.

Kubota Garden Pond

Seattle city acquired this property, which is an historic landmark, in 1987 from the estate of master landscaper Fujitaro Kubota. Kubota was a horticultural pioneer when he began merging Japanese design techniques with North American materials in his display garden in 1927. The Gardens are a spectacular setting of hills and valleys, interlaced with streams, waterfalls, ponds, bridges, and rock out-croppings with a rich array of plant material
