(Things to do in Greenbank Washington)
Greenbank is a sweet little gem, a heart stone in the middle of the island. Let tranquility and beauty surround you while you go enjoy some really neat spots.
Greenbank farm is iconic on Whidbey Island and a must stop location if you are in the area.
Breathe in the smell of the blue Puget Sound water and views of the Olympic Mountains as you set up your picnic lunch at a table with a view.
"I have envisioned for the future… a peaceful woodland garden,"
Quote from Ann Wright Meerkerk in 1979. And wow, did she and her husband Max ever make one.
Fifty-three acres of forest preserve and a truly stunning collection of rhododendrons and native plantings comprise this beautiful garden with walking paths and a nursery. Their annual rhodie sale pulls folks from all over the region, and the Mother's Day concert on the grass overlooking the water is a standing tradition.
Greenbank Pantry & Deli have quickly become integral to the feeding of folks who live nearby and roam up and down the island.
Excellent sandwiches on homemade bread, extra bits of exotic cheese to try, and shelves full of condiments you had that one time and loved but can never remember. It's on 525 and tiny so don't blow by on your way somewhere else. Stop.
