Opened to the public in 1996, Green Bay Botanical Garden's 47 acres of display gardens and natural areas capture the beauty of northeast Wisconsin's four distinct and wonderful seasons. Visitors will enjoy outstanding architecture that sets the stage for an all-star performance by plants specially chosen for their ability to thrive in the Upper Midwest.  A horticultural and recreational resource to the region, Green Bay Botanical Garden offers a variety of educational programs to its members and the community. A year-round calendar of special events features a wonderful mix of gardening, cultural and family activities, including the Garden's popular Garden Fair and WPS Garden of Lights.

Green Bay Botanical Garden displays 48,572 perennials, trees and shrubs of 3,370 taxa.  Yearly, the garden plants 25,000 annuals and adds 45,000 bulbs to its spring display.  In the last five years the garden has expanded into horticultural research and is involved with the following trials - annual seed and vegetative trialing for Ball Horticultural Company, All-America Selections trialing of seed grown flowers, A.R.T.S. rose trialing, Earth-Kind™ modern rose trialing, and a Callicarpa study initiated by Chicago Botanic Garden.
