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.

Went there for a friend's wedding. The day before we were there for a preview (the rehearsal part) and enjoyed the gardens during the day, however, in the evening, at the wedding you could see the sunset and the lights of the town. This is when the high level park truly shines. Nice views and sights. The walking trails are... More

A beautiful oasis high above the city of Wenatchee. A fantastic must see. A garden set 650 feet above the city, built by hand. Gardens, trees, ponds are all here and you wonder how they are growing when everything around an below is all open land. Do go see, you will enjoy.

I assumed that the title word, Garden, meant flowers. Ohme is a lovely tree-filled area with stone step trails winding through Glen's and ponds. It's a serene area with benches to sit and think. Some steep places but even with a weak leg I made it without problems. A nice place to get away for an hour.

Ohme Gardens, on the edge of Wenatchee WA, is a beautiful area to visit, to relax, to compose extraordinary natural photosl It is a common choice for those who prefer not to have a church wedding to gather and enjoy family and friends in a quiet open area. I have officiated weddings there and shared the joy of bride,groom and... More

Ohme Gardens is such a surprise! The Wenatchee area without irrigation is dry and desert-like, a land of cheat grass and sagebrush. But magic can be made when you add water. Ohme Gardens is such a place. Transformed by a man with a vision and high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Columbia River, it wanders, climbs and descends the... More

Beautiful views, lakes, falls and ponds BUT we had to leave pretty quick. Trails are rocky and steep. I am recovering from a broken leg. Definatly not a place for me today but 10 years ago yes. Great for kids. They will have a ball. They even offer free use of ski poles to for navigating the trails. Use them.

We had no idea what we were going to be treated to. It was a wonderful oasis of green gardens in a very dry land. If you look up the hillside from Wenatchee, you'll wee this one green area on the hillside and that's the gardens. We walked around for about an hour. The woman at the gate was friendly... More

600+ feet above Wenatchee is a beautiful oasis. Trees, ponds, flowers and plenty of trails to enjoy not only the gardens but wonderful views of the surrounding area. You can get a workout just walking the many trails. The area is now mailntained by Chelan County and they do a wonderful job. If you are in the area, only a... More
