Showcasing northwest plants since 1963
Referred to as Snohomish County's 'treasure', the Evergreen Arboretum & Gardens is both a place of beauty and education and is free to the public. Located on 3 ½ acres in American Legion Memorial Park, Everett Washington, its ten themed gardens include the Urban Tree Walk, Entrance Garden, Rock Garden, Northwest Native Plant Trail, Japanese Maple Grove, Northwest Demonstration Garden, Viewing Mound, Woodland and Conifer Gardens as well as the 200' Snohomish County Master Gardener's Demonstration Border and sculptures throughout. Weaving through these gardens are ADA approved pervious pathways in most areas. There are countless ways to experience and enjoy all that the Evergreen Arboretum has to offer; docent-led tours, educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.
Access update for walkers at Legion Park
You can park on the bluff and walk in, no gatherings or groups, and no restroom or facilities at all. Dawn to dusk.
STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY, GARDENERS!
While we have not canceled our June Plant Sale and Raffle at this time, we have thus far canceled classes and events for March/April/May. Please check back often as we all navigate this unsettling and difficult time in our country.
Stay safe, and for now, please stay home, as Mayor Franklin and Govenor Inslee have directed. The longer it takes to shelter in place the longer this virus will linger.
When restrictions on gathering end, we will all need a long walk in nature. The arboretum will still be there, ready to oblige.
Because of state laws governing raffles and our current social distancing, ticket sales for the raffle wlll have to wait until we can gather again. We hope that will be soon.

The mission of the Evergreen Arboretum is to create and maintain an inspirational arboretum and gardens accessible to all, internationally-acclaimed and locally-enjoyed for its plant diversity, original art and educational opportunities.
