Bloedel Reserve Tour on Bainbridge Island

Bloedel Reserve
7571 NE Dolphin Dr.
Bainbridge Isle, WA 98110

Docent guided tour specifically for our group.
Admission cost is $13.

Meet me at The Visitor’s Center. I look like my photo wearing a bright yellow scarf.

Please Note: On our last tour, almost no one checked in with me at the specified location, which really baffled me. The whole idea of meet-up is to actually meet; so if you sign up, PLEASE SHOW UP and please INTRODUCE YOURSELF to me when you arrive.  Thanks!

The Bloedel Reserve in Bainbridge Island, Washington is an internationally renowned public garden and forest preserve. The founder’s vision was “to provide refreshment and tranquility in the presence of natural beauty,” and the Reserve’s mission is to “enrich people’s lives through a premier public garden of natural and designed Pacific Northwest landscapes.”

The Reserve’s 150 acres are a unique blend of natural woodlands and beautifully landscaped gardens, including a Japanese Garden, a Moss Garden, a Reflection Pool and the Bloedels’ former estate home. We invite you to visit this Northwest treasure.

Please note you'll need to take a ferry to this event.  Please check the schedule and allow sufficient time.

    What a wonderful day!!! Thank you all who showed up - it was a great turn-out! Thank you Justin for taking photos. Can't wait to see them. I'll upload a few soon. For me the best parts were the details - the cobra plant, the giant lilies, the jack-in-the-pulpit, the clover ground cover, the nesting eagle, the waterfall,......amidst all those wonderful trees.

    Rain? The weather forecast calls for possibly drizzle or light rain. People who let that form of precipitation stop them are wimps!

    I'm definitely looking forward to this and I would bet so are a lot of other people.

    Thanks Teresa for putting this together!

    See you all tomorrow.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
