Summer is in full bloom!

The Visitor Center and gift shop are now open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 3pm. Guided tours are available Tuesday-Saturday two times a day at 11am and 12:45pm. You can request a guided tour here. Events and classes at the Garden are cancelled at this time because of the coronavirus, but the Garden and Labyrinth are always there for you to walk and enjoy.

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!
