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.   Learn more about the botanical garden’s history and programs.

Thanking our Healthcare Heroes

As a way to say thank you, the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks has given out free passes to the garden to frontline workers in the COVID-19 pandemic.  The garden is a beautiful place to relax and take refuge during this difficult and stressful time.

This effort is part of our Community Access Program, which is made possible through a generous grant from the Walmart Foundation.  

Thank you to all the doctors, nurses and essential workers on the frontline of our united fight against COVID-19, and all you are doing to keep our region safe and well.

Access for all! 

We want the garden to be accessible to everyone in our community, so through our Community Access Program, we grant single-use garden admission passes to underserved and disenfranchised groups in the community.  If you work for a group that serves a population of people who can not otherwise afford the admission fee, you may apply on behalf of your organization using this application form.  Thank you to the Walmart Foundation for making this program possible!

Going on a trip?

The American Horticultural Society's Reciprocal Admission Program offers free admission and/or additional benefits at 300 gardens throughout North America and the Cayman Islands. You can reference the AHS website here.
