Pop-Up Seattle – Dunn Gardens

June 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join the Olmsted Network for tour and lunch at the historic Dunn Gardens in Seattle, WA.

We’ll explore the magnificent grounds together— with history and horticulture experts leading the way— before gathering for a boxed lunch and conversation. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes. All are welcome to stay at the gardens until close at 4 pm PT.

This very special garden— just north of Seattle— was originally part of the country estate of Arthur and Jeannette Dunn.

While the Olmsted Brothers firm was working on public projects in Seattle, many wealthy Seattle business owners hired the well-known firm to design landscapes on their private estates. In 1914, salmon cannery owner Arthur G. Dunn and his wife Jeanette purchased ten acres of land north of Seattle, planning to create a summer home. The following year the Dunns hired the Olmsted Brothers firm to locate a cottage and develop a landscape plan to surround their future summer home. The Estate and gardens were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994.

Space is limited. Please register before the June 7 deadline.

This experience is part of a new and exciting travel opportunity! In 2024, the Olmsted Network is hosting exclusive “pop-up” trips in the Olmsted-rich cities of Seattle (June 21), Staten Island (July 19-20) and Buffalo (Oct 30- Nov 1).

These short trips will allow our partners and friends the chance to meet like-minded travelers and explore Olmsted parks and places like never before— with expert guides leading the way!
