The Highline SeaTac Botanical Gardens were created to preserve two gardens during SeaTac Airport’s third runway project. To avoid demolition, the gardens were physically moved to their current location next to the North SeaTac Community Center.

The 11-acre area now includes the Elda Behm’s Paradise Garden, Seattle Rose Society Celebration Garden, Seike Japanese Garden and Sensory Garden, with plans for additional expansions in the future.
