Two more chances to tour West Seattle’s Walker Rock Garden

Five months ago, the home whose site includes the Walker Rock Garden – a quirky labor of love – was put up for sale. Rather quickly, its listing showed a pending deal … but so far, there is no indication that has closed (the notation remains “pending feasibility“), and for those who have wanted advance notice of chances to see the rock garden, in case its days are numbered, here it is: From time to time we have checked its website, and just happened to find it has two tour dates listed: July 1st (this Friday), 10 am-noon, and July 16th, 9:30-10:30 am. The website also promises “more times to be announced.” (Our previous inquiries asking its owners and realtor for a status update have gone unanswered so far, but we keep trying.) The Walker Rock Garden is at 5407 37th SW; read its backstory here.

    This is one of West Seattle’s most delightful hidden gems – long may it live! Well worth a visit.

    If you’ve never seen the Walker Rock Garden, you *definitely* need to go before this outsider art disappears (or at least is no longer open to the public).

    “Pending feasibility” – To me spells death toll for the garden. Subdivision of 12,700 sq. ft. lot and new home where garden once stood.

    @BeenThere Goodness, I hope you’re wrong. But sadly, I suspect you’ll be right. :(

    Wish I could buy it. I would totally keep that garden! Darn.

Sorry, comment time is over.
