It’s easy to fall into a routine when it comes to your favorite Seattle walks. And one of the great things about our city is just how many outdoor spaces we have. Especially now that walking has become such a fixture in all of our pandemic lifestyles. So we think you should add Kubota Gardens to your list of places to check out because it’s one of Seattle’s most beautiful parks and we could all use a little relaxation right now.

If you are unfamiliar with Kubota Gardens, it’s located in South Seattle and features over 20 acres of gardens. Not to mention, it’s been around since 1927 when master landscaper Fujitaro Kubota brought it to life with his own two hands. So thanks to his hard work, this park has rolling hills, waterfalls, and beautifully trimmed native plants. Plus it even has a few koi fish.
