One of our stops on a scenic drive through the
Pacific Northwest was in Silverton Oregon, at a series of display
gardens created by the Oregon Association of Nurseries (OAN)
Groundbreaking for the Oregon Garden took place in 1997 while the
grand opening celebration occurred 4 years later in 2001.
Development of various other gardens took place over the years and
included a groundbreaking for the Oregon Garden Resort in 2007.
Other structures and amenities have been added in years since and it was well worth our stop for a garden tour.
