A scenic garden with stone walkways and spectacular mountain views and water features. The gardens were started in 1929 by Herman and Ruth Ohme and first open to the public in 1939.

Enjoy a refreshing respite at this amazing evergreen oasis in the heart of Washington State. Nearly a mile of natural stone pathways traverses the hillside gardens, ushering you past breathtaking panoramic views, towering cedars and firs, lush foliage, mesmerizing waterfalls and tranquil pools. Stone benches located throughout the grounds provide ample opportunities to savor the beauty of Ohme Gardens. The average time to tour the Gardens is one hour.

Visitors come back time and time again to view the ever changing vegetation in the gardens.

A gorgeous place of history and splendor. Bring your comfy shoes because you will be stepping on stone stairs with some steep trails, to get to all the nooks and crannies in this beautiful place with wonderful views and wildflowers. Great place to come to read, have a picnic, take family pictures, celebrations. I myself was married up there 16... More

Wish I was younger and in better shape. This is a beautiful place but all the paths are mostly straight up and down. They should make a path maybe that is more meandering.

It's almost hard to fathom how beautiful the grounds are kept and how amazing the gardens always make you feel.

This is a must stop garden if you are in the area. A beautiful green oasis in the middle of a very dry part of Washington. We got there early before the day heated up and walked the outer part of the gardens while it was still cool but it heated up quickly!! Spent the remainder of our visit walking... More

This is a unique privately owned park created by an orchard owner who wanted a little more green in the desert. It is in full view as you enter the area up on a high cliff face. It is the only spot of green other than the orchards and vineyards of the area. I don't know how they managed to... More

This is a great place of solitude and beauty. I just wish they could drop in for a week and transform my house to this paradise. A great place to get married I am sure.

Ohme Gardens is a real one of a kind. It is amazing that Chelan County can support this excellent facility. The community should be very proud that they have preserved the beauty started by the Ohme family so many years ago. Great gardens and magnificent views of the valley and mountains.

Very pretty gardens built into the hillside. Please note though, they are not for everyone -- the steps up and down are not uniform, can be narrow, and I would not recommend them for anyone with a cane/trouble climbing steps/etc.

What a great place to visit. Beautiful cared for gardens, landscaping, waterfalls and trails throughout the gardens. We understand that many weddings occur at Ohme Gardens and private parties. Also has live entertainment at times during the summer. Definitely a must stop if visiting the Wenatchee area.
