Conservation/Environment Riverfront Park Demonstration Garden

Designed and planted by Washington State University Extension Master Gardeners, in partnership with Chelan County PUD, the Riverfront Park Demonstration Garden provides a showcase for the great variety of plants that meet the requirements of minimal water use and survive the harsh weather conditions in Chelan County. Each season produces a new display of flowers.

The garden was designed and planted by the Washington State University Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners. The volunteer labor of the Master Gardeners maintains the area. The Chelan County Public Utility District co-sponsors the garden.

The garden overlooks the Columbia River in Wenatchee's Riverfront Park. The garden is located along the Apple Capital Loop Trail near the Nile Saunders Steam Train. The garden can be reached by parking at the train depot then walking north on the trail, or at the foot of Fifth Street near the city ice rink and walking south on the trail. The garden boasts over 40 varieties of low-water-use plants and grasses.
