Second Wind | Bloedel Reserve & Japanese Memorial

Second Wind

The spectacular 150-acre Bloedel Reserve has been described as a forest garden that was created by Virginia and Prentice Bloedel, under “the influence of the conservation movement and Asian philosophy.” The Memorial Wall commemorates the 276 Japanese and Japanese Americans who were exiled from their Bainbridge Island homes under President Roosevelt’s Order during World War II.

Second Wind Tour | Japanese Garden

Second Wind

This beautiful place is a tranquil space designed to offer all the traditional elements of a Japanese garden. There are winding paths through spectacular trees, and lovely plants, as well as water features, ornate bridges, and stones leading up to “mountain-like perches all coming together to carry the soul through this peaceful experience.”

These hikes are planned by Linda Haba, whose goal is to organize a group of up to 6 people to meet monthly (this can be more frequent if the group so desires) to walk around Greenlake.
