Volunteer Park Conservatoryposted on February 10th, 2011 in Seattle by Luis Perez
The conservatory is a Victorian green house located in volunteer park in the north end of capitol hill. It houses palms, ferns, cacti and several seasonal and native northwest plants.
After recently moving from Florida and spending 11 years there, it was nice to get a dose of tropical warmth and exotic beauty. But I also equally enjoyed being introduced to many wonderful native northwest plants i’d never seen before.
You can easily spend an hour here admiring all their diverse flora & fauna. And if you end up at Volunteer park on a cold day, the conservatory is kept warm in most parts. Admission is free w/ a suggested donation fee.
