On Saturday, June 3, at 10 a.m., you are invited join us for a walk through the Washington Park Arboretum's Pacific Connections Garden.

We will meet at the south end of the Japanese Garden parking lot, near the playfield. Parking is free and the area is served by Metro routes 11, 43, and 48. Family and friends are welcome to join us. This walk involves some elevation gain that is handled with gently sloping trails.

The Pacific Connections Garden is a multiphase multimillion dollar project that is the first new project in the Arboretum in nearly 50 years. This garden showcases plants native to five regions of the Pacific Rim, which are Cascadia, Chile, China, Australia and New Zealand. Large portions of the garden have been completed, including the meadow, five entry gardens, interpretive shelter, Gateway to Chile, and the Cascadia and New Zealand Forests.
