The 25-acre Botanic Garden at Historic Barns Park is a year-round sanctuary of environmental preservation, recreation and education. Guided tours are conducted at 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Saturday, through the end of October. A self-guided audio tour is available at the visitor center.

            The Botanic Garden’s unique and original design 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 different forms of wildlife.
