  • 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.
  • Dubuque Arboretum is a wonderful place to go hang out with Mother Nature. The varieties of different Gardens are truly breathtaking especially around the third week of June. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly as well as knowledgeable. From hosting music in the park to hundreds of weddings.
  • I always enjoy coming here. The area they use is larger than you'd expect. They have many volunteers help maintain it and they have playground equipment in another area of the park for kids.
  • Beautiful sprawling grounds that are so well maintained! It is also 100% volunteer ran. Was super fun to feed the koi fish :)
  • Beautiful, well kept, and free! What's better than hundreds of beautiful flowers in a well maintained quiet peaceful area. Nice activity to make time for.
