Visit the garden anytime during Magnuson Park open hours to experience our brand new multi-language signage, which welcomes all garden visitors in 10 different languages! Then choose a Discovery Card in the language of your choice, and go on the Discover-Your-Garden interactive exploration adventure to find 10 special places in the garden, from the Grey Whale Garden ocean to the top of the Lookout, then down and around the Roly-Poly Path to the Log Pile, Willow House, and beyond! Our new Columnar Oak Tree and Sunflower Forest will be smiling down on you through your whole journey too!

Thanks to all 2019 GiveBig donors!

Thanks to all who donated to the garden on GiveBIG Day, May 8th! Our total donations were $282.00, and we earned a $600.00 challenge award from Seattle Parks Foundation for having 6 new donors! These funds will get us started on three important 2019 garden goals: having our cracked and fading Interpretive sign and Salmon Survival Path sign refurbished (see photo above), and adding new wayfinding signs in the Magnuson playground and at the NE 74th St. crosswalk that point the way to the garden!
