Center for Urban Horticulture

The Center for Urban Horticulture, which is located on the northeastern edge of the University of Washington campus across from University Village, offers several spaces for meetings, lectures, classes, and social events. Surrounded by 16 acres of gardens and the 74-acre Union Bay Natural Area, the Center offers an unparalleled venue in the heart of Seattle. Featuring comfortable rooms, ample off-street parking, and beautiful, park-like surroundings, the Center is a great place to get away from urban st resses without leaving the city.
