Ohme Gardens is a nationally acclaimed attraction in the Wenatchee Valley. With its winding stone paths through forest trees, pools, waterfalls, and spectacular views of the valley, this unique evergreen oasis is a living legacy, a testament to the Ohme Family’s hard work and vision since 1929.
Over the years, however, as the Gardens have grown and matured, so has the need for additional maintenance and upkeep. The County of Chelan took over management of the Gardens to keep it open to the public but always with the intent that it would be self-supporting. While admission fees, weddings, and events cover day-to-day operations it is not enough to preserve and enhance this aging garden in the long-term. With your help we can keep the Gardens alive and thriving for years to come!
