Fodor's Expert Review Ohme Gardens

Wenatchee Garden/Arboretum

At this lush green oasis, high atop bluffs near the confluence of the Columbia and Wenatchee Rivers, visitors can commune with a blend of native rocks, ferns, mosses, pools, waterfalls, rock gardens, and conifers. Herman Ohme purchased the land in 1929 as a private family retreat and developed the gardens—now owned and managed by Chelan County—for his wife, Ruth. The couple nurtured the gardens until Herman died in 1971.
