Formerly the family garden of Reginald H. Parsons, whose children donated the land to the city after his death, these lush, flowery gardens are secured by small gates and cloistered under protective trees. Weddings often take place at Parsons Gardens, providing a burst of extra beauty, but the gardens are most lovely in the blue light of a long summer dusk. Stroll under the trees and breathe in the flowers. The swank mansions along the drive add to the illusion of being on a country estate. Finally, step across the street to Marshall Viewpoint for the view across Elliott Bay to the Olympics. The Highland Drive carriage drive, now an elegant vista road lined with lampposts, winds away to the north.

Most visitors hike the miles of trails, which offer great bird-watching opportunities.
