About Us

The Seattle Chinese Garden inspires global understanding by immersing visitors in the richness and beauty of Chinese culture. Our mission is to create a traditional Sichuan-style Chinese garden, the only one of its kind outside China, as a means of celebrating Seattle’s rich Chinese heritage and supporting Seattle’s future business and cultural relationship with China.

Our mission to enrich the quality of life in the Pacific Northwest, by providing a beautiful “coming together space” in Sichuan style, will strengthen the region’s global community and citizenship.

The Seattle Chinese Garden Society is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization responsible for the creation and operation of the Garden.

Information is available about the Garden’s Sister City, Chongqing, board and staff and job opportunities as well as answers to frequently asked questions.
