Escape the Stench

This is just in from a Beach Drive neighbor, Mary:

West Seattle has a real treasure a short distance away from Beach Drive’s odoriferous low tides: The Arboretum at South Seattle College’s north end.  Leaves there are beginning to turn reds and yellows.  Amble the winding paths through pleasant-smelling shrubbery (e.g., Golden Elaeagnus).  The award-winning dwarf conifer collection also begins changing colors this fall. Free guided tours Oct. 10.



  1. Note that this location has one of the nicest “high alpine” gardens in Seattle.
    Crushed granite and other rocks, beautiful conifers, native dogwood shrubs, all mixed with awesome maples.

  2. Rob and I went to check out the Arboretum this morning… it is really a nice garden!
