The Garden Landscape Guide

Kubota Garden

Fujitaro Kubota emigrated to the US from Japan in 1907 and began the garden in 1927. In 1987, the City of Seattle acquired the garden and it became a public park.  There is a series of ponds fed by Mapes Creek, waterfalls and bridges. Tom Kubota, son of Fujitaro, designed a stroll garden in 1999.

    What a gem in the city! I visited this garden at the end of May when the Rhododendrons were in bloom and what an explosion of color! There are so many paths to explore and pockets of gardens. You must cross the red railing bridge and don't forget to follow the path up the hill to experience the depth of this truly beautiful garden.
