It was great! It sprinkled a bit but didn't faze us in the least! Children's garden was awesome spent 45 or so minutes there alone. It was very nice to be able to hop on and off the tram. Bring a picnic lunch! There were many different beautiful spots all around the garden to have picnic covered and uncovered.

Even though we had to dodge rain squalls, got to see their gardening section and a nice forest walk. Love the gift shop -- I always find something interesting there!

These gardens are amazing. The variety and the landscaping are beautiful. Unfortunately we were there a bit to early and the garden had not started it's real Spring growth. This garden is worth a visit anytime. I think that later in the Spring or early Summer would be dramatic.

We were there in March so there were not a lot of blooms out yet and workers were planting and mulching. However, several trees were in bloom and the daffodils were in abundance. Can't wait to see it in Summer when in its full glory

I am not a gardener but I love nature and its creations (flowers, grass, trees, wildlife...). I recently signed up for a (very reasonably priced) membership because I realized I came here so many times last year that it makes sense to get the annual pass (aka, membership), which also has some very nice perks (check the garden website for...

It is situated on acreage in the Oregon Foothills east of Salem near Silverton. The views are spectacular. The plantings are very well designed and integrated. They are well kept, pruned and tidy. Lots of different areas - I especially like the conifer garden, the many water features and fountains, and the childrens area. There is a tram to transport... More

Everything was just getting ready to bloom - buds everywhere - and everything is clearly marked and identified. It is pretty amazing to think these gardens are only 13 years old. We will return to wath them grow.

Took my honey to a "quilting show" and ended up walking and enjoying the gardens so much, even in winter. So much so that we are planning a return trip this spring just for the gardens. Best part was the conifers.

This garden is so well laid out and we were enthralled by the conifer garden. So much to see in just this one section of an 80 acre garden.To really benefit from a tour of the garden I need to see it in spring or summer. I highly recommend this attraction.
