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.

October storm forecast. High winds. Garden. Not words you want to hear together in the same sentence. Would the heritage trees we hold in such high regard falter in the projected weather? Perhaps we’d lose some of the branches of those specimens at the Dunn Gardens we know to be 100 years old.
