Solstice image w wordsThe Solstice Stroll is back!

December 9, 10 & 11 (Fri., Sat. & Sun.) from 4:30pm-8:00pm (last entry at 7:30pm), come see the Garden aglow with twinkling lights, luminaria and unique artworks! Join us for carolers, warm refreshments and a simply magical walk through the woods. Admission: Free; a suggested donation of $10 is encouraged.


All parking for the Solstice Stroll will be offsite, at the Richmond Beach Congregational Church / United Church of Christ at 1512 NW 195th St, Shoreline WA 98177. Enter the parking lot from Richmond Beach Rd (just west of 15th Ave NW). Our convenient shuttle will pick you up at the edge of the parking lot to bring you to the Garden. For the safety of our guests and our neighbors, we ask you to limit parking in the neighborhood, there is limited visibility after dark.

This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.

A note about accessibility: There will be limited handicap parking available at the Garden in our main parking lot. You are welcome to drop off / pick up in the bus loading zone if riding the shuttle will be a hardship for anyone in your group. Part of the stroll is through a level area and is accessible, but much of the path is gravel or mulch trail along the hillside. There are stairs on the main route (going up only), and there is an alternate exit that does not require ascending stairs. If you are concerned about navigating uneven ground, we suggest that you bring a flashlight. Thank you - we appreciate your understanding.


The Garden and Nursery will be closed to prepare up for Solstice Stroll during daytime business hours on December 9-11; those days we will open for the Stroll from 4:30 – 8pm.

The Garden and Nursery will be closed from December 19th - January 5th. Our first open day of 2017 will be Friday, January 6th, from 10am - 3pm.
