Meh!!
Oct 2021 • Couples
I live in Western Washington and am use to lots of different varieties of vegetation, I did not see that here in this garden. This garden is full of Vinca Minor utilized as ground cover, nothing unusual about that!! I have it in my garden. The views of the Columbia Valley are beautiful,!! However, be real careful walking on the stone pathways. They are uneven and have potential to be a dangerous trip hazard. My husband and I visited in October, me thinks spring could be a better opportunity to see their gardens.

Hidden gem!
Sep 2021 • Couples
This place is a hidden gem! Absolutely a must see destination! We have driven by the sign for years and never knew what it was. You are transported to a magical garden full of beauty and peace. The work that it took to build this place is unbelievable. We will be going back for sure year after year.

Disappointed

We stopped here and were kinda disappointed. Was not very impressed. Ok little walk on old rock path. Ponds were ok to look at, but was crowded and not very eventful.

Gnomes fairies and beautiful gardens
Aug 2021
A beautiful huge garden on a mountain in the city. Not far away, budget friendly, the home and dairy hunt were amazing. I'd recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Great Views
Jul 2021
Nice views of the river valley and plenty of shade. It was an interesting contrast to Leavenworth as you are on the edge of desert-like areas here.

We didn't really see any flowers (late July) but there were various water features (ponds, water falls, etc...) and other displays to spruce up the garden.

Note that this is not for mobility-challenged people. The experience mainly comprises of walking up and down trails and many stairs created from flat stones. They have free walking sticks you can borrow. Little kids didn't seem to have any problem, but the elderly might.

Oasis in Wenatchee
Jul 2021
We spent a little over an hour touring the gardens as a stop on a weekend trip to Leavenworth. I'm so glad we made this stop!

I hadn't heard of the Ohme Gardens before, but the Ohmes created them beginning in 1929. They really crafted a beautiful oasis on the side of a hill in Wenatchee. There are various different water features. The Sylvan Pool was my favorite. This was a peaceful, shaded area with a rock pool where one could sit and while away the hours.

It is absolutely amazing that so much of the gardens were built by hand with limited modern machinery. It was clearly a labor of love and great that it's open to the public to tour.

Adults enjoyed spectacular views of the valley and beautiful landscaping while kids were busy looking for gnomes and fairies hidden throughout the park.

Enjoyable time here!
Apr 2021 • Family
Fun family adventure walking through the maze of beautifully manicured natural grounds exploring and finding waterfalls and pools, taking in the views and just enjoying time stretching your legs outside in a pretty area. The trails were all stone slab pieces which everyone really liked. Staff there are super nice and pleasant too!

Spectacular setting
Feb 2021
A beautiful secrete spot, a bit of HWY noise; but the grounds are stunning. Late Spring is the best time to view the garden and be prepared for a good walk.

Had been wanting to come here for a long time and a date finally brought me here. Thoroughly enjoyed the place, particularly the ponds and hunt for fairies.
