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.

I was on a business trip and stopped at the gardens before heading out of town. It was not the best choice for me. The weather was hot (High 80s) so climbing rockery was not all that fun. Also my allergies were in check about half way through the garden. So, I had to leave. I did notice families picnicking,... More

This primarily green garden hangs on a hillside overlooking Wenatchee. Its trails are, at times, steep and always rocky. Good shoes are helpful. It's a peaceful place featuring ponds, trees, shrubs and boulders. When we visited (May) what flowers there were were close to the ground, almost like wildflowers.

We decided to take a detour to this attraction after seeing the reviews on trip advisor. So worth it. The county took over the land and put in restrooms and admission booth. The walk is almost one mile with varying inclines. There are several benches to rest on. If you are afraid of bees, beware. There is one type of... More

Great place with lots of history. The gardens are very well maintained, and the paths are clear and we'll marked. There are some places that are uneven...care should be taken there. Overall great place to visit

My wife and I were married here last May. It couldn't have been a more perfect venue. The guests are admitted free when part of a wedding party. Part of what makes Ohme so special is how "organic" it feels: the paths, flowers, and pools are well integrated into the natural landscape. They also diverge in enough different directions that...
