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.
To conserve the Dunn Gardens for public enjoyment and education, and to promote the preservation of other Northwest gardens of historical and horticultural significance.
Last year visitors told us that the afternoon spent in the Dunn Gardens with Theater Schmeater should happen again. And so it will. This year Theater Schmeater will be performing the classic "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."
Our very first Summer Picnic!
Open Saturday: Open days have become favorite events for members and nonmembers alike when the regular tour is suspended and visitors are invited to wander the grounds at leisure.
