Kubota Garden: A Year Round Seattle “Must See” Garden

Kubota Garden is a stunning 20 acre landscape in the Rainier Beach area of Seattle that blends Japanese garden concepts with that of the Pacific Northwest. The rich diverseness of the garden attracts true gardening enthusiasts, photographers, and romantics; it affords a surprising sense of solitude and moments of real reflection in the heart of Seattle. This is one of the “must see” gardens for horticulturists and those pursuing garden design.

The park was originally the estate of master landscaper Fujitaro Kubota. Kubota was a horticultural pioneer when he began merging Japanese design techniques with North American materials in his display garden in 1927.

The thoughtful garden design makes it beautiful year round. You will enjoy the rock gardens, waterfalls, and walking paths that snake through densely planted trees, shrubs, and flowers.
