Located in historic Wright Park, the W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory is an important historical and botanical landmark. As just one of three public Victorian-style conservatories on the West Coast, it serves as a hallmark of Metro Parks' commitment to horticultural excellence and environmental enrichment in our community, and offers a miniature retreat from the everyday, for everyone.Opened in 1908 through a generous gift from William W. Seymour, this historic glass conservatory has a distinctive twelve-sided central dome and is listed on the City of Tacoma, Washington State and National historic registers. 3,000 panes of glass make up the dome and wings of the Conservatory.More than 250 species of exotic tropical plants are on permanent exhibit, including bird of paradise, ornamental figs, tropical fruit trees, orchids, palms, bromeliads and ferns.
