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.

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.

Lush and green, the gardens are a monument to one mans' ability to "terraform" the landscape, turning desert into forest. A very nice place to visit or better yet- get married. As one flies over Wenatchee, one can clearly see the Gardens from above.

My kids (age 9,7,agenda 18months) all enjoyed the walking pathes, water pools, and colorful flowers. There were many picture opportunities and the fee to get in... More

We have been to gardens all over the world...This is like nothing we have seen before. Built by one family on the top of a dry mountain on the Cascade Loop, this garden is unique. Local stones were used to create terraces, steps, waterfalls and pond areas. Small local pine trees were carefully planted and watered and are now big.... More

For $7 you can buy some quiet time and solitude among the spacious gardens that can take you up til one hour to complete exploring or longer (kids 6-17 years old $3.50). Like previous reviewers have mentioned, make sure you are in good shape to negotiate the uneven rocky stairs which is so prevalent on the grounds and adds to... More

The Ohme Gardens were an unexpected surprise. Up a winding road from a busy Wenatchee intersection, the gardens were cool, quiet, and beautiful, a stark contrast to the rather arid landscape below (the gardens are at the top of a hill). The staff at the site were chatty and informative and there was literature available describing how the Ohme family... More

This garden was a work of love by a local couple in the 1930's, who took a piece of high desert on a hilltop and made a a place of beauty and pece. It has many shady nooks on a hot day, and overlooks the city of Wenatchee and the confluence of the Wenatchee River with the Columbia. There are... More

Came for a family wedding and it offered a beautiful setting with room for the ceremony and reception. Great views of the Columbia River and valley below. The green landscape provides a calming, cooler feeling among the dry hills that surround it. There is a pond, and uneven areas so parents should stay close to young children. Many photo op... More
