Reflection and contemplation at Bloedel Reserve

PSE is excited to share our support for Bainbridge Island’s Bloedel Reserve, an internationally known, experiential public garden and forest preserve with approximately 150 acres of woods, sculpted landscapes, meadows, ponds, and wildlife habitats. The grounds were developed by Virginia and Prentice Bloedel who purchased the property in the 1950s as a summer retreat, developed the extensive landscapes, and opened the Reserve to the public in 1988. Since then, Bloedel Reserve has continued to evolve, earning loyal visitors and horticultural accolades along the way.

“During the COVID crisis, we’ve learned just how important Bloedel Reserve is to our community. Having a place to immerse yourself in nature isn’t a luxury; it is a necessity for well-being. This is why we are especially grateful for support from Puget Sound Energy. As a Founding Business Partner, PSE’s contributions are helping to keep the Reserve open and accessible to all”, shared Edward Moydell, The Richard A. Brown President & CEO of Bloedel Reserve.

Bloedel Reserve is open year-around, Tuesday-Sunday, from 10 AM to 5 PM. Reserve grounds are currently welcoming visitors for self-guided walks. Access to the grounds is by timed ticket only and health and safety precautions are in place for both visitors and staff. Masks and advanced ticket purchase are required for visits.
