Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden

Last weekend I had to go to SeaTac airport to pick up my husband from his business trip. My mom and I ended up with about an hour to amuse ourselves before Karl's flight arrived. We drove around looking for a park to walk our dogs and ended up at the Highline SeaTac Botanical Garden. It was a dog-friendly garden so we leashed up the dogs and walked through their gate. It was a magical and soothing setting. We chose the shade garden path and meandered along the beautiful path. We came to a lovely pond with a couple of benches to sit and enjoy the garden sights.

We continued our exploration of the small garden and in the Rose Garden it appeared that an evening wedding was being set up. I can only imagine how exquisite it must have been. Not only that, the weather was picture perfect as well.

The time passed too quickly and before we knew it, the call came that Karl's airplane was taxiing towards the terminal. Now that I know this place is here, I will be sure to make a return visit so I can continue to experience this wonderful little garden. There is still so much to see!

What a beautiful place to wait for a plane, and dog friendly too.

Beautiful collage! I never knew this garden was there and since we are at SeaTac a couple of times a year I will have to make a point of searching it out.

What a great place right there in the middle of all that activity. Love the pictures!

Thanks for your lyrical promotion of our garden, Sally! We really are an unintentional secret, and trying to remedy that. Our website, www.highlinegarden.org has information, directions and our facebook page link, so give it a visit - and make sure to post your favorite pictures there, too! -Laura Sweany, Garden Manager & Volunteer Coordinator
