Madison Park is named after the 24-acre green space located on the shore of Lake Washington, where beaches offer stunning views of Lake Washington and Mount Rainier. The surrounding neighborhood hosts scores of locally-owned caf├ęs, pubs, coffee houses, toy stores, ice-cream shops, bakeries and boutiques. West of Madison Park is the 230-acre Washington Park Arboretum, one of the finest public gardens in the U.S. Jointly managed by the University of Washington and the city of Seattle, the park is open year-round and has a formal Japanese Garden at the south end of the Arboretum.
