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.

We have attended most of the summer concerts at Ohme gardens they are truly amazing! I love to put my feet on the grass, share some wine and treats. The stage set up off the edge of the cliff creates a wonderful vantage spot for viewing Wenatchee Valley and taking in close up views of the Bands

It's not very big, but it does have some beautiful gardens and views in which you can get lost in and enjoy nature at its' finest. If you like visiting gardens, do go and enjoy.

Can you imagine the vision that it must have taken to stand at the top of the mountain and say I'd like to build an amazing backyard there. Thanks for visiting! More

A very pleasant surprise to find this fantastic construction project in the middle of a desert atmosphere. The project was completed by Mr. Ohme using rudimentary tools and over a period of several decades. The green areas, the pools, the benches are all impressive feats by a family devoted to bringing beauty to a desolate area. Truly an amazing feat... More

Thanks for visiting. If you are in the area, look for our Open House usually the third week of September, where we bring out some of the tools that were used by the family to create the Gardens. More

Our daughter was married in a beautiful evening ceremony at Ohme Gardens. It is a forest and garden reserve high above the Columbia River and the city of Wenatchee. Bring a meal to share with family and friends during the day or schedule a special event at this spectacular oasis.

Beautiful views, easy to walk paths, lovely rock pools. An amazing cool oasis, the day we visited was extremely hot, but the trees made it shady and it was relaxing to wander through the greenery. It was only a short trip off the main road, and well worth taking the extra time to have a look.

Thanks for visiting. It's amazing in the heat of summer the Gardens are at least 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the valley floor, something that we are sure the Ohmes knew when creating the Gardens. More

The Ohme Garden really shouldn't exist given that it is basically in a near-desert, but it does and it is, in its own way, amazing. That someone had the vision to build this terraced sanctuary with its very pleasant small spaces and vistas is astonishing. You don't visit the Ohme for its plantings—they are pretty common Northwest natives and hearty... More

Ohme Gardens was a very nice surprise to find here in Wenatchee. The trees are beautiful and the stonework and ponds were amazing. It was a cool oasis in what was a hot day.

The place is so beautiful, it's hard to capture the experience in photos! Each trail has a little different scenery, and so exciting to see what's around the next bend in the trail.

This is a beautiful and quiet place to visit. You travel from a very busy road up to a quiet oasis. With twisting paths taking you to small pools and quiet corners, where you don't realise that you are in a busy town. The history of the gardens is very interesting to read about.
