  • Came here for the Christmas lights on a Free day and enjoyed it! We came last year too, wasn't on a Free day but also wasn't expensive, maybe $5 per person if I remember correctly. They have a little gift shop inside, sell hot cocoa, coffee, and cookies and sometimes have choirs that put on a show. Check their website to check their events and on what days they will have the choirs as this changes. Parking is usually available in their large parking lot, however, if there isn't parking available there is another parking lot within a 2 minute walking distance down the hill for free.
  • Good stroll through fun garden of lights at Christmas.. what's not to like? It's a bit smaller than in previous years, or it would get a 5. $5 per adult, kids under 10 free. Take it as slow as you like, or walk through in 40 minutes, if you have a little one with a short fuse.
  • This sprawling park has a lot to offer. The trails run for miles through thick forest. There are two full size base ball fields and a soccer field. The playground is nice and includes a zipline. The botanical garden area is well kept and was recently upgraded. They do Christmas lights each year, which is a must see attraction.
  • Very beautiful grounds/park. Parking could be improved and less chaotic during events. Also staff can be friendlier during "CHRISTMAS" and "Holiday" events. Put on a smile tell people Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, guys, come on. Gets a 4 star for the grounds.
  • Amazing park in Bellevue! Really cool story behind how the park was created. If you are looking to go for a walk and enjoy nature this is the place to go! Also in December they do an incredible light show display and a few nights out of the month it is free to attend, otherwise it is like $5.
