Showcasing the Natural Beauty of the Ozarks

Educating Today for a Sustainable Future

Providing a Gathering Place for Celebration and Entertainment

Learn. Play. Grow.

The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is a captivating destination in Northwest Arkansas that draws more than 80,000 visitors a year. The Garden is a collection of twelve themed gardens and includes the region’s only native butterfly house. We are a member-supported public garden dedicated to education and environmental awareness and serve as a community destination for unique nature experiences.

Our education programs include workshops, classes, and lectures for adults in horticulture, conservation, and other topics of interest to gardeners of all skill levels and others who admire the beauty and science of the natural world. The majority of our education programs are for children of all ages. We work with area school districts to provide hands-on nature and science learning experiences. Our programs such as Little Sprouts, Earth Day, Butterfly Days, and Firefly Fling offer unique outdoor experiences to thousands of children each year.

4703 N. Crossover Road • Fayetteville, AR • 72764

The garden is closed on New Year’s Day, Christmas Day and Thanksgiving.

Please Note:  Winter has arrived and that brings changes to the garden. The winter months are a great time to see the overall structure and “bones” of the garden.  This time of year most of the flowers are gone, however our evergreens look wonderful, wildlife is abundant and there is still much to explore.

By December our native butterflies have moved on because of the cold weather and will be back next May.
As Northwest Arkansas’ only botanical garden, we are open year-round and welcome your visit any time of year!
