Plan of the Garden

The Garden, located within the boundaries of Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is a 15 acre site maintained as a wild, naturalistic setting of woodland, wetland, oak savanna and prairie environments, with encircling unimproved pathways and a staffed rustic shelter where educational materials and guidebooks can be found. Open April - October.

The unpaved pathways total less than a mile in length and encircle various parts of the different ecosystems. They are covered with a chipped cedar mulch. There is an elevation change of 80 feet between the wetland in the Woodland Garden and the Hills of the Upland Garden.
