Washington Park Arboretum

Washington Park Arboretum | Interpretive + Wayfinding Plan, and Loop Trail Wayfinding Designs

client: University of Washington
location: Seattle, WA | size: 230 acres opened: 2004


LCS produced a comprehensive Interpretive and Wayfinding Plan for the Washington Park Arboretum, a site originally designed by the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted. This project was identified in the Park’s Facility Master Plan and was one of the first of many to be implemented. LCS did extensive research on the contextual issues, produced signage style guidelines, and made recommendations for the implementation of work at the Park. The Park has subsequently used the Plan to produce various elements in the landscape.

LCS also worked with Berger Partnership landscapers to develop signage for an Arboretum Loop Trail.

We are honored to have played a role in articulating a coherent foundation and in producing unique contextual designs for the on-going life of this cherished oasis in the urban landscape of Seattle.
