We have lived in Whatcom County for over a decade, and had been hearing about Glen Echo Garden for several years, but never found the time to go. I'm glad we finally did. Although it has been a cool spring and mid-June was still early...More

You would never know it was there driving by--travel down into this lush valley in summer and you will be surrounded by the most vivid and tasteful colorful gardens. Fun themes, lots of variety to explore on little trails.

The best time of course is in the summer when the gardens are in full bloom. The walk can be a little challenging for those who can not walk so far. A wheelchair would be recommended.

The inconspicuous sign at the top of the off-ramp from the I-5 hardly does this lovely garden justice. And with no other signage until we got to Y-road, we weren't even sure we were in the right place. But find it we did. Dick was...More

A little ways out of town, but the drive is worth it. A lovely garden with many little hide away spaces.

Very well manicured garden. It's a very relaxing scenic spot. It would be a good trip for older folks, but kids might get bored quickly. At $12 per person, it's slightly pricey for the experience. Very interesting history, and our tour came with a wonderful...More

This is a beautiful and serene garden with many lovely flowers and plants. We were there about 2 hours and enjoyed every minute. It was difficult to leave. I recommend it to any adults especially those with cameras.

An really beautiful set of gardens hidden away in a valley. I can understand couples wanting to get married there. It is both romantic and special. The owners should be proud of what they have accomplished and the pleasure they give to those who visit.

Has a lot to do with what you like. It has nice flowers and is at the bottom of a ravine surrounded by trees with little breeze. No vistas. Usually not very busy. Primary developed area is not real large - you can easily see... More
