What used to be a West Seattle Mother’s Day tradition is coming back tomorrow after skipping a few years. Brad Cooper, the real-estate broker who has long represented the Walker Rock Garden property in West Seattle, says it will be open for Mother’s Day tomorrow, noon-3 pm. The rock creations comprising the “garden” were a labor of love by the home’s longtime residents, the late Milton and Florence Walker, as explained in this “West Seattle 101” chapter republished on WSB.

Three years ago, it was put up for sale, but records indicated no deal was made, and it went off the market until late last year; the listing is still “active,” meaning no buyer so far. It used to be open to visitors on Mother’s Day, as well as other scattered times of the year, but hasn’t had announced opens on Mother’s Day or another day recently. But Cooper just e-mailed to ask us to let you know that it will be open tomorrow. It’s at 5407 37th SW (map).
