Wright Park is a 27acre arboretum and public park located in Tacoma, Washington that is managed by Metro Parks Tacoma. The park was designed by Bavarian landscape architect Edward Otto Schwagerl.
The arboretum contains over 700 mature trees, representing about 100 native and exotic species.
The W. W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory is a greenhouse located in Wright Park.
The Victorian-style conservatory was built in 1907, and named in honor of donor William W. Seymour. Its wings and twelve-sided central dome contain some 3,500 panes of glass. Six sculptures created by former conservator Clarence Deming rest among the plants, and reflect African, Māori, and Aztec traditions.
The conservatory contains more than 550 plant species in its permanent collection, including agapanthus, azaleas, bromeliads, cacti, clivias, cymbidium, epiphyllum, ferns, figs, more than 200 orchids, palms, and rhododendrons. It also contains a rotating exhibit of floral displays that generally features between 300-500 blooming plants at any given time.
