Event Description

Want a romantic thing to do around Valentine’s Day in Seattle? Treat yourselves to a romantic walk through UW’s Botanic Gardens lit by luminaries.

It’s also educational! You and your loved one can learn about pollination, while you’re add it, and sip some warm beverages.

We suggest that, perhaps, you also add to the romance by also going out for a meal before or afterward:)

Here’s the official blurb from the event organizers:

Join us for a celebration of love at the Arboretum! Grab a loved one (or a few) and enjoy the romantic atmosphere of a luminary walk!

For the first time ever, we’re hosting a Valentine’s Day themed luminary walk through the park, inspired by our annual Winter Solstice event!

Enjoy a romantic stroll through the park, guided by the soft glow of pink luminaries, create your own Valentine’s cards to give to loved ones, learn about pollination from our own UWBG Education team, and warm up with some hot cocoa, cider, & tea in Wisteria Hall!

Make this a Valentine’s Day to remember!
