TOUR TIPS…

  • Three of the gardens are located on South Hill Puyallup and the others in Bonney Lake
  • Weather can be very unpredictable in June. We suggest bringing an umbrella—good for both rain or sun!
  • Bathrooms are not available at the gardens, so you should locate a bathroom elsewhere before your visit.
