 Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, one of the country's premier public gardens, offers 1,137 acres of beautiful gardens and northern-hardy plant collections, as well as natural prairies, big woods and thriving wetlands.  

 Visitors will discover 32 themed gardens and 48 plant collections, plus 12 miles of trails, all nestled among the woodlands, wetlands and prairie that are Minnesota's natural heritage. 

 Named by USA Today as one of the "10 great places to smell the flowers," the Arboretum features an expansive Visitor Center with restaurant, art gallery and gift store. Adjacent to the Visitor Center, the charming and historic Snyder Building houses the  renowned horticultural library. 

Opening in August 2013 is the Harrison Sculpture Collection, featuring 22 world-class artworks by internationally acclaimed contemporary artists.  The collection is located at High Point on Three-Mile Drive. 

The Arboretum is open year-round, offering nature-inspired seasonal and holiday events and recreational trails for hiking, skiing and snowshoeing.
