Sensory Garden at the Woodland Park Zoo

Find it: 700 N. 50th St., Seattle

The city recently put the final touches on this project next to the zoo’s Rose Garden. It's a fully accessible, welcoming delight for all the senses, with elements that stimulate sight, touch, smell and sound. Fragrant plantings with diverse textures, braille signage and cool sprays of water are just a few of the garden’s sensory-rich design features.
