Dubuque - Dubuque Arboretum and Botanical Gardens

3800 Arboretum Drive
563-556-2100

The Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens have been a part of the Dubuque community since 1980. Quietly nestled on the city's northwest side and featuring more than 60 different types of gardens (including Rose, Hosta, English, Japanese, Herb, and more), the grounds continue to grow and expand every year.

Located in Marshall Park, the Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is a living museum developed by volunteers. All volunteer-created and volunteer-maintained, their work is a labor of love for all who visit The Gardens as well as a symbol of devotion for the growing things of the earth.

The park is free. In Addition to some paths there are beautiful gardens. There are ponds with fish. And one of the best features is a park with ample seating, restrooms and shade which is the most lacking quality of the parks in Dubuque. Also there are concerts during the summer outside in this lovely, natural setting. This is one of the premier destinations for those who want to enjoy the beauty of nature in a quiet, peaceful setting. This is a place where mothers of small children can meet in safe surroundings to let the kids loose in places where they cannot stray too far. The playground is simple but adequate to keep the kids occupied for hours. Moms can sit close by on benches or at tables to commune with nature or visit. Grandparents will appreciate the proximity of things to parking.

The gardens are kept in good shape by volunteers and the little pond is a go to spot for us. I've been here for weddings, picnics or just to enjoy. We love the free music on Sunday evenings in the summer. The playground is a nice little addition for the kids. A good place to spend the day with family and friends.

Love this place!!! Beautiful park like setting. Wander around, look at & smell the flowers. Listen to the waterfalls. It is a comfortable stroll through out the grounds. Picnic areas also available with plenty of shade. Use Google Maps to find it easily. Ample parking. Nice clean bathrooms located in the gift shop. Check the website for musical offerings on Sundays through out the summer months. Sit on the expansive lawn, bring a picnic and listen to the musicians playing in the gazebo. Play ground area on the grounds as well to keep the little ones entertained.
