W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory: Grand Reopening

Calendar/Event Details

The renovation of Tacoma's beautiful W.W. Seymour Botnaical Conservatory in Wright Park has concluded and it reopens its doors to the public Saturday, May 14. The 114-year-old conservatory is one of just three public Victorian conservatories on the West Coast, and the year-long renovation has added some stunning botanical features, including a floor-to-ceiling living plant wall, golden dart frog habitat, carnivorous plant bog and fancy new gift shop. It also includes very practical things like a new boiler and beautiful new lighting.

The event will also include:

  • A free plant for the first 100 visitors
  • A scavenger hunt as a way to introduce the new plants
  • A naming contest for the golden dart frogs
