At Volunteer Park, one gets to enjoy the best of nature and human-made facilities. This park houses both the volunteer park conservatory as well as the Seattle Art Museum. The museum's collection includes thousands of paintings and sculptures and textiles from China, Japan, India and other southeast Asian countries. There is also a Botanical Garden, where you can witness many species inside a Victorian glasshouse. The 43-acre park, located on Capitol Hill, is perfect for an afternoon picnic, sunbathing or a casual stroll. This park is one of the oldest parks, as is evident from the ancient trees that it houses.
