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 Ĺ 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.


Arboretum Closure & Thank You to our Sponsors

The Arboretum will be closed to the public beginning July 13 for the Soil Replacement and Arsenic Mitigation project.  The area will remain closed for the duration of the project at Legion Park.  We will re-open next spring, when the project is complete.  

Thanks to so many volunteers and supporters we had the most successful Arboretum Plant Sale and Gardens of Merit Tour ever!  A special thanks to our sponsors, Windermere Cheryl Durham; Pacific Topsoils, Inc.; Pacific Stone Company, Inc.; Port Gardner Bay Winery; Sunnyside Nursery; The Daily Herald; and Evergreen Arboretum and Gardens.  All the funds raised will go toward the completion of the South Area Plan, including the accessible paved pathway, additional landscapes and a major art installation.  

Thank you everyone who participated!
