Tuesday Evening Walk - Everett Legion Park to Grand Avenue Walk

I found a beautiful garden walk in Everett we can do even if it gets dark before we finish.

We can start by Legion Park in Everett, walk through the small arboretum (dogs are allowed, just stay on the trail) and then walk along the street to Grand Avenue Park.  There are some beautiful homes along here, with waterviews along the way, and the gardens are starting to come alive.

This will be a 3.5 - 4 mile RT walk.  It may start to get dark before we finish and, although there are street lights, come prepared with a flashlight and lights for your dogs so they can be seen.

Legion Park - Evergreen Arboretum

Referred to as Snohomish County's 'treasure', the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is both a place of beauty and education and is free to the public. Located on 3 ½ acres in Everett Washington, its ten themed gardens include the Urban Tree Walk, Entrance Garden, Rock Garden, Northwest Native Plant Trail, Rain Garden, Japanese Maple Grove, Northwest Demonstration Garden, Viewing Mound, Woodland and Conifer Gardens as well as the 200' Snohomish County Master Gardener's Demonstration Border and sculptures throughout. Weaving through these gardens are ADA approved pervious pathways in most areas. There are countless ways to experience and enjoy all that the Evergreen Arboretum has to offer; docent-led tours, free educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.
