     In the brief time since opening in 1994, the Bellevue Botanical Garden has become a major center for gardening activity.  A number of gardening and horticultural groups contribute volunteer hours and funding to make it grow.  Thousands of visitors from the local area and around the world have enjoyed its beauty.
     The new Ravine Garden Experience will take visitors along a pedestrian trail through a second-growth forest and a steep-sided ravine in the southeast corner of the Bellevue Botanical Garden, which is located within the larger “Cascadia Experience”. The project entails construction of a 150-foot long, five-foot wide pedestrian suspension bridge made predominantly of steel which will span the ravine and allow visitors close proximity and intimate views of the plants, wildlife and forest canopy into and around the ravine.
