Where in Washington State can I find examples of public gardens designed to be drought-tolerant xeriscapes?

There is a water-wise garden in the Bellevue Botanic Garden.

Seattle Tilth maintains several demonstration gardens, including the Good Shepherd Center in the Wallingford neighborhood in Seattle and Bradner Gardens Park at 29th Ave. S. and S. Grand Street, in south Seattle. While not exclusively xeriscapes, their gardens employ water-saving techniques.
