Nestled amid 47 acres, Green Bay Botanical Garden pays homage to its preservationist past by showcasing an environment rich with flora native to the Upper Midwest. The strolling-inclined will never tire of the lush layout, boasting 44 points of interest, including winding walking trails, fountains, centaur vantage points, and more. From the Schierl Wellhouse, visitors can view a remnant of the center’s ancestral orchard, as well as a manicured patchwork of herbs and annuals in eye-popping patterns.
Other highlights include the Agnes Schneider Terrace, a patriotic planting of American perennials; the Gertrude B. Nielsen Children’s Garden, a whimsy-strewn imagination zone; and the Stumpf Belvedere, a picturesque Grecian-style gazebo known for its romantic surroundings, celestial ceiling cut-outs, and arrogant, yet soft-hearted English butler.
