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.
