Located on the North side of Wright Park, Seymour Botanical is a pretty little conservatory that has been around for over 100 years. It's a lovely tropical stop replete with a small koi pond that lifts my spirits during the winter. There's a suggested donation but anyone may walk in and enjoy the greenery. There's also a tiny and very... 更多
What a lovely and unexpected surprise! Such a beautiful little garden, full of orchids, water plants and Venus fly traps. There were some very well developed Pitcher plants, which I had never seen get that large! The staff all seem to love their jobs and are willing to answer bucket loads of questions from wanna-be gardeners! Even my grumpy teenager... 更多
Lots of exotics and an impressive array for such an unassuming greenhouse. Particularly if it is a cool day, this is a nice refreshing burst of hot and humid!

I went twice to this place - very interesting - good photos. Needs a toilet though, IMHO. Across the street is a document museum, which is also very interesting, AND has a toilet.
I love this little corner of Tacoma. It is great in all seasons, but especially wonderful after a string of cold and dreary days. They also have a summer story time for kids.
