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.

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

It was a hot day when we visited but the shade of tall evergreen trees helped a lot. Beautiful pools and plants. Lots of vistas of the Wenatchee valley. Staff was very friendly. There are restrooms on the property. This is not a good choice for those who are physically challenged as the paths are sometimes a little steep and... More

These gardens are beautifully maintained. There's probably about equal parts shade and sun. It's a nice place to go for a calm and peaceful afternoon. There was a wedding being held while we were there, but the way the gardens are set up we didn't feel like we were intruding on them and we still got to see everything.

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

I took my mother-in-law, my 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter to explore the gardens one rainy summer day and everyone loved it. (I was wearing sandals for some dumb reason and really didn't have any problems.) The gardens are views are amazing, very serene. They also have a cute little gift shop. It would be an... 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
