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.
Raffle Tickets are available at all Arboretum Classes, Work Parties, and events. They can also be purchased at Sunnyside Nursery in Marysville and at Legion Park's Sorticulture event in June.
ARBORETUM CLOSED FOR RECONSTRUCTION UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Two new benches will be installed in the arboretum giving us additional seating when we re-open. A third bench, donated by the Snohomish County Master Gardeners, will be placed in their new border. The Parks Department has also provided us a storage area to secure our supplies and tools for volunteers in a large container adjacent to our office.
The City of Everett Cultural Commission has purchased the sculpture “Stone Vessels” by Verena Schwippert for the City’s permanent collection. This piece is currently located near the educational pavilion. This is a major work by a prominent regional artist, and a wonderful addition to our permanent sculpture collection.
Though we don't yet have a firm date to reopen, please be assured it will be open as early as humanly possible! We will try to keep you informed as things move along. Thank you for your patience.
