The Walker Rock Garden

walkerDrive by 5407 37th Avenue SW in West Seattle and you will find a garden designed for whimsy and fantasy. Created over twenty years ago by Milton Walker, a Boeing mechanic, its towers, walls, and paths are Seattle‘s version of the WattsTowers (in the Watts neighbor in California). This unique garden is constructed using rocks Milton transported from Eastern Washington in the trunk of his car, and embellished with gem stones and minerals. The result is a colorful delight.

Unfortunately, Milton and his wife have died. Their family continues to maintain the garden and has opened it for public tours. Visitors are welcome to tour the garden on specific Sunday’s and holidays. From the first of June through Labor Day the garden is open Sunday’s (except for the first Sunday of each month) from noon until 5PM. The gardens are also open on Mother’s Day from noon until 5PM. The Walker family will allow people who would like to visit the garden outside of these scheduled times by appointment. For appointment requests call the Walker Rock Garden by calling 206.935.3036.
