With over 20 specialty gardens and features, The Oregon Garden provides a colourful introduction to the plant life of the Pacific Northwest. Start off by taking a tram ride through the 32 hectare (80 acre) gardens to get a tour of the botanic scenery and a feel for the garden’s layout. Exercise your imagination by completing a dinasaur dig in the Children’s Garden, check out the 6 meter (20 ft) long rain curtain in the Sensory Garden, and sample the fruits and veggies of the Silverton Market Garden. Pick up a map at the entrance for easy navigation of the gardens. Plan to see The Oregon Garden and other attractions that appeal to you using our Silverton journey app.
The Oregon Garden reviews
It is a beautiful spot with lots of interesting and informative features. Just too early in the year, and no signs of grounds people trying to deal with multiple weeds & damage. Feels neglected... more »
Large, landscaped gardens of largely perennial shrubs and trees that are now 20 year's old. The February ice storm damaged some of the trees, but the architectural lay out of the gardens remain... more »
Fantastic! A grand yet delightfully charming respite. I can tell so much love and care went into this place. A great variety of well-tended flowers of plants. Educational and play space. Weekend tram and cafe(s). Even a tucked-away lodge..? I wish Seattle had this beauty.
Okay... don't be in a hurry when you visit. The tram runs Friday, Sat, Sunday only. Now, for the good stuff: If you are someone who prefers huge impactful landscaping ideas, go while the annuals are still in bloom April-June. However, there are many unexpected and breathtaking features here, such as the 400 year old Oak tree, limbs long, strong and reaching out to you like a storybook Grandpa. The conifer garden, reflection pond and DOG GARDEN. Yes... well behaved, good humans can bring their dogs! Try not to let them disturb the chickens, though! Don't make the mistake of comparing this to any other show gardens...just enjoy. If you can go mid-week, and earlier in the day, even better. Oh...I overheard several good reviews about the lodge and it's restaurant, too. (Bathrooms are easy to find and we'll kept.)
