About the Northwest Native Garden

Established by the Tacoma Garden Club, this garden displays and celebrates the native flora of the Pacific Northwest.

Paths winding through the one-and-one-half-acre garden pass a lovely waterfall, pond and striking wooden gazebo that Thomas Church helped design and place.

The Tacoma Garden Club is instrumental in the maintenance and development of this Northwest treasure. As part of the Garden Club’s ongoing stewardship, they are currently raising funds for a Revitalization Plan for the future of the garden focused on education, improving the visitor experience and ongoing maintenance.
