The Seattle Chinese Garden inspires global understanding by immersing visitors in the richness and beauty of Chinese culture. Our mission is to create a traditional Sichuan-style Chinese garden, the only one of its kind outside China, as a means of celebrating Seattle's rich Chinese heritage and supporting Seattle's future business and cultural relationship with China.
At this time of year, the light should be great around 3:00PM. Tripods are allowed! Free for Seattle residents.
Directions: Drive into the north entrance to South Seattle Community College [masked]th Ave. SW). The college arboretum is on your left and then the walkway to the Garden Entry Courtyard.
Parking: Continue driving straight ahead past the one-story building on your left (the Chan Education Center). Turn left into the entrance to a small parking lot for the Landscape Horticulture Building (LHO) and the Chan Center. If this parking lot is full, park in the large lot to the south. Look for Chinese Garden signs directing you to the walkway to the Garden's Entry Courtyard, and in the Entry Courtyard to the Discovery Center.
