Owner description: 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.

We used this venue for wedding and it can accommodate a small to a large party with great pictures! For a thorough walk-about, you should wear good shoes and you can bring a picnic lunch and set-up before entering the park. No alcohol :(

Ohme gardens is a beautiful garden with several waterfalls, ponds and trails to enjoy. There are amazing plants and manicured gardens to view as you walk along the paths. This is worth visiting. We spent half a day and could have stayed longer.

On top of a bluff Herman Ohme and his wife started a very nicely landscaped garden. His son expanded it in later years. Many plants, pools and a few waterfalls make for a relaxing stroll. All the paths are covered in hand-placed flagstones. There are steps and there are choices for easy or difficult terrain. It is well worth the... More

BEAUTIFUL! Such a surprise in garden landscape. The property offers beautiful views, waterfalls, lush landscapes and numerous walking trails. It is of no surprise that it is an acclaimed attraction. If you are in the Leavenworth or Wanatchee WA area, this is definitely worth the visit.

A very wonderfully different garden. One of the highlights of our trip! Built on a mountain with little rock trails going very way possible. Kind of strenuous, and would probably be slippery if wet. There are ski poles to use for walking sticks and it really helped. A few little pools were nicely landscaped. A lot of overlooks for the... More

Wow!!! Was this place cool. Basically a couple worked there whole life landscaping and installing about 10 little ponds, and walk ways all around 9 acres I believe it was. I was impressed with the vision. This place was their own little Shangri-La. It was beautiful. I had to think multiple times how many years it took to lug just... More

During the summer of 2013 we took our son and daughter-in-law to Ohme Gardens. We also had our young granddaughter along. I have known of the garden for many years, but had never visited before. My son lives in Wenatchee and we were visiting him and his family. What a wonderful visit we had. The garden is a wonder in... More

It might not look like much from below but once you are there walking around the trails you will feel you've been transported to an alpine meadow. It is a lovely gorgeous place. It is well worth a stop if you have time.

We recently visited Butchart gardens in Victoria - Those gardens are filled with flowers and Victorian design. Ohme gardens are a tribute to the vision of a couple who devoted their lives to building magical trails out of stone. Adorable little structures - think Snow White & 7 dwarves. Reflecting pools with stone benches. Meandering trails. Majestic vistas. Native plants.... More
