Bellevue Skate Park and Botanical Garden Nominated Best in the Northwest

The Bellevue Skate Park was nominated in the Skate Park category and Bellevue Botanical Garden was nominated in the Best Park category of this year's Evening Magazine Best of the Northwest - Best Northwest Escapes contest. If you are interested in voting, you can click on the links for each - voting ends April 11.

These two unique facilities represent the diverse range of activities that are available throughout the parks system. I recommend a visit to both. At either location you can observe and perhaps learn a trick or two from masters at their craft, be it gardening or skateboarding.

Pop quiz: Is "deadhead" a gardening term, a skateboarding term, or both?

  1. I read the Botanical Garden's future proposals and am very impressed. The suspension bridge will definitely be something I'll have to check out, when it's finished.

    One problem the BG needs to address within the next 10 years is connectivity. There needs to be an easier way to get from downtown Bellevue to the garden without having to drive a car.
