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.

Garden closed to public until further notice

After much consideration we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close the garden, beginning at 5 pm, Friday, March 20.  This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and with the health and safety of the community and garden staff in mind.

Additionally, the Earth Day Festival scheduled for April 25 has been cancelled.  We look forward to putting on this great event next year. Please be sure to check our website and social media pages for the latest updates on the status of other garden events and activities.

To help support us and the loss of revenue during this time, we encourage you to consider joining or renewing your garden membership, or making a donation.  As a small nonprofit organization, we depend on the community to keep the garden going. We know the garden means so much to so many in Northwest Arkansas and beyond!

Mother Nature doesn’t stop, so we will continue to keep everyone updated and share garden-related videos and images, including what’s blooming, on our social media pages – so be sure to follow us there!

Spring is such a busy and beautiful time at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, and our horticulture team is still hard at work making sure the grounds are well maintained.  When we are able to reopen, this special place will be more stunning than ever! Plan to visit often and attend an event or two – time spent in the garden is good for the soul.

We look forward to being able to welcome you back to the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks soon.
