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. All volunteer-created and volunteer-maintained, we encourage and greatly appreciate all financial donations so that we can continue growing a more beautiful world!
