What to Expect
Bloedel Reserve is an experiential public garden and forest reserve — a mixed tapestry of woodlands, meadows, and landscaped gardens. With 150 acres and 23 distinct landscapes to explore, it’s a perfect place to immerse yourself in nature. A loop of well-maintained bark and gravel trails and paved roads wind through the Reserve. The loop is approximately 2 miles long. To walk the entire loop, plan to spend at least 2 hours at the Reserve. Guests with limited mobility (ADA), can access the highlights of the Reserve via a paved road. The ADA route is approximately 2/3 of a mile round-trip; it has a slight incline on the return trip. Wheelchairs are available for use by guests.
To maintain our meticulous landscapes and the tranquility of the experience, we do not permit food or beverages (other than water), or pets (other than assistance dogs) on the trails. For information about nearby restaurants or city parks where you can enjoy a meal or snack, just ask the Gatehouse staff.
