We visited in early March, so not a lot blooming. But, still very nice to walk and enjoy. Plants and trees well marked. Children’s play area, chickens, secret garden, ponds and waterfowl. Very enjoyable visit.
It is the best in Silverton
Garden rooms, garden art, water, test gardens, conifer garden. It suits all personalities for eye candy in one place. Plan a visit!
Christmas Lights at the Garden
Took Girlfriends sons and grand children to the Christmas Lights. It rain this night but was still a beautiful site to see. Some lights were out but staff was working hard to get these on to enjoy.
Most uncomfortable night ever!
We have been at the Oregon garden numerous times, and this was the worst time ever & probably won't go back. The pet rooms are smelly. Not all cottages have easy access & have very noisy neighbors! It was suppose to be a special time for my husband & I, it was far from that & not a good experience! I'm actual reluctant to stay anywhere again!! The garden does not have good accessibility!
Lovely Walk in Festive Oregon Garden
My sister and I went to the Oregon Garden because I had never been there before. I was excited to see the garden dressed in lights for the holiday season. We were not aware we would have to park so far away and walk to get into the garden. The festivities made up for the hike, except where the lights were out. The lights were out in about half the displays, with about one forth of those being out. That being said, it was not crowded and we had a great time. When it came time to return to our car, there was a bus. The bus was pointed out to us by the entry person. We were told it would take us to the lower parking area where we parked. Instead, we were taken to the regular entrance of the garden. We were dropped off and sent up a path to which there was no exit. We then had to catch the bus again to explain to some volunteer man what/where he sent us. He proceeded to argue with us about it. I had to finally raise my voice a bit to have him stop arguing and listen. He finally and begrudgingly took us to our lot.
