Whether you are a local or a visitor to Bainbridge Island, Bloedel Park is a must visit for nature lovers and appreciators alike. Bloedel Reserve is an “internationally renowned public garden and forest preserve” and enriches people’s lives “through a premier public garden of natural and designed Pacific Northwest landscapes.”

The rolling hills of the public gardens are a beautiful sight that are enjoyed year-round by visitors. As the colder months set in, the reserve dedicates nights to making this time of the year “a little brighter with a special candle-lit walk.” Members and even non-members of the reserve, are welcomed to participate in the magical Solstice Walk events held throughout December as a way to enjoy the “tranquility in the presence of natural beauty.” Those who join the candle-lit walk will enjoy trekking through the trails with only the glow of their lantern and stars above them.

The winter fun doesn’t end with the Solstice Walks. Enjoy the wonder of winter festivities by touring a miniature town that “captures giant imaginations.” Each hand-made miniature building will create a whimsical holiday memory fun for the whole family.
