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 acres in Everett Washington, its ten themed gardens include the Urban Tree Walk, Entrance Garden, Rock Garden, Northwest Native Plant Trail, Rain Garden, 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, free educational classes, the annual plant sale and volunteerism. Come witness the beauty that every season holds. The Arboretum is open from dawn until dusk.

Our website is currently under reconstruction, much like our gardens. The Virtual Tours are being updated. Please excuse the mess. It will be cleaned up soon, and better than ever!
