Visit Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum was created to inspire and inform through outstanding plant displays, protected natural areas, horticultural research, and innovative education. Founded in 1958 it is a member-driven non-profit with more than 1,200 of professionally maintained gardens rare plant collections and trails. It is part of the Agricultural and Natural Sciences at the university of Minnesota. The Arboretum is engaged in cold-hardy plant research and has developed 27 commercial apples, including my favorites – Honeycrisp, Haralson, and First Kiss. In 2019, USA Today readers named the Arboretum the best botanical garden in North America.
The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is an arboretum and horticultural garden that is part of the University of Minnesota. It is the largest public garden in the upper Midwest and comprises more than 1,100 acres. Over 5,000 plant varieties can be found in the park.
The arboretum features gardens displaying plants developed for northern climates as well as educational exhibits, demonstration gardens and a unique Japanese garden area. The property features natural areas, including miles of hiking and cross-country skiing trails. There is a horticulture library and conservatory on site. Guided tours are available as well as a three-mile driving route that passes many of the park’s highlights.
