The Dunn is joining a long established tradition of holding a picnic in the garden. Our particular one is in August—details will follow.

About the Gardens

The esteemed Olmsted Brothers Landscape firm designed the Dunn Gardens in 1915. One hundred years later the vision of the Gardens as a place of timeless grace has been realized. Notable features include naturalistic groupings of trees, broad lawns with borders of shrubs, and woodland walks.  Plants range from diminutive erythroniums to large rhododendrons and towering Douglas firs.

Mission

To conserve the Dunn Gardens for public enjoyment and education, and to promote the preservation of other Northwest gardens of historical and horticultural significance.

What’s Happening Now

New—The Tuesday Wander: As of June 6, the Dunn Gardens will be open from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm every Tuesday. Members and their guests, up to a party of four, are invited to stroll about at their leisure, enjoy the scenery, the blooms of the moment and take photographs.
