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.

Just as you are exiting Wenatchee on your way to Chelan, you can take a look to your left and spot this hillside all covered with green conifers....it seems out of place and captures your eye. If you drive up, you will find Ohme Gardens. The Ohme family spent over 40 years creating this "alpine garden"...complete with ponds, trails, heather,... More

A true oasis. As you walk through various gardens and by emerald pools, you get an occasional peek of the city below which makes this lavish paradise even more of a paradise experience. A must do.

My wife is an avid gardener / landscaper so we included Ohme Gardens on our itinerary during an October visit to Washington. We were not disappointed. Lovely place to meander to enjoy the views and appreciate the realized vision of the developers. It was the very end of the season yet the gardens with their rock formations were still compelling....

Beautiful, relaxing, calming, and in the summer, cooler! We've spent time in Ohme Gardens, just wandering around and we've attended various functions here (such as wine and food tasting events), which are always enjoyable. A great place to take family or visitors!

Let's start with: Being a woman, I do not like to be out on desolate trails. My companion does. We found these gardens and saw a nice trail to take. We asked some other people coming out if it was OK and nice and they recommended it. It was not a bad stroll and we did not make it all... More

Was here on a business get together and the scenery was outstanding. If you have small children and want a great photo opportunity come hear and bring you camera!

The grounds are great and to think it was the vision of one couple who put so much work & time into it. The ponds are amazing. Great place to spend some time.

This was a nice, quiet spot. It is a little pricey for a walking path at $8 a person. It is quiet and serene. It is sad that the view has been obstructed by the highway and industry in the area.
