The Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is an all-volunteer organization. We rely on your generous donations and membership dues (along with event revenue and gift shop sales) for the funds needed to keep the garden growing. Becoming a member helps ensure that we can all enjoy the new growth to come – together. We couldn’t do this without your support. Thank you for helping the garden grow!

This is your community. This is your garden.

Located in the heart of Traverse City on the beautiful grounds of Historic Barns Park.

The Botanic Garden is a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education. Its 25 acres nurtures the soul, enlivens our history and promotes Michigan’s natural beauty. With an emphasis on plant species native to northwest Michigan, it creates and enhances habitats for various forms of wildlife.

As a place of refreshment and solace, The Botanic Garden’s unique and original design strives to inform and inspire. After over a decade of careful planning and preparation, the garden is coming alive.

We'd love to hear from you!
