You can't see the garden from the road. The walk down hill is steep. Take their offer to ride in a cart. Save your energy for wandering the walkways in the park. Bring your camera to help you explain to your friends about the garden,...More

A must-see! 5-6 acres of beautiful garden, off the beaten path, and very quiet. Most beautiful in late July or August as all the flowers are in full bloom, but any time spring through fall is great.

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.

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

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this amazing garden. And the owner Dick Bosh even serenaded us with his pan flute. He was a wealth of knowledge for local history and the home made jams and jelly's they sell are awesome. Mr...More

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

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
