The Arboretum features more than 1,215 acres of magnificent gardens, model landscapes, and natural areas - from woodlands and wetlands to prairie - with extensive collections of northern-hardy plants. Tour the Arboretum on 12.5 miles of garden paths and hiking trails. Walk the close-in gardens and walk or drive Three-Mile Drive to see more gardens and collections. From late spring through mid-October, visitors can ride our new Circulators offering step-on and step-off service at three stops on the Arboretum grounds. Limited access to Three-Mile Drive in winter for vehicle traffic (pedestrian traffic remains open). Winter Wonder bus tours are available Thursdays and Saturdays (check times and fees at Visitor Center).
The University of Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is part of the College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences at the University of Minnesota. Our mission is to be a growing resource for horticultural and environmental information, plant conservation, research and education; and to inspire and delight a growing visitorship with quality plants in well-designed and maintained displays, collections, model landscapes and natural areas.
