“Milwaukee County's Living Museum”
Boerner Botanical Gardens is a reminiscent of an English country manor with glacial fieldstone walls and historic, handcrafted limestone statuary. Its 1000 plus acre Arboretum spans Whitnall Park and stretches along the adjoining Root River Parkway. Trees and shrubs belonging to the Arboretum's special collections are arranged in groves according to plant family. Both beautiful and educational, the arboretum serves as an outdoor classroom for anyone interested in woody plants. Boerner Botanical Gardens also includes the Annual Garden, Perennial Garden, Rose Garden, Herb Garden, Daylily Path, Bog Walk, Rock Garden, Shrub Mall, and the Peony Garden.
Great place for a first date! Boerner Botanical is in Witnall park which has many hidden waterfalls and trails. Stay awhile and explore.
