About
There are few places in the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky area where you can see such a unique arrangement of diverse plants. Encompassing 121 acres, the Boone County Arboretum is also known as Central Park, and was the nation’s first arboretum within an active recreation park setting. The specialized arrangements of plant families and 12 athletic fields are connected by a 2+ mile winding multi-use trail. Don't let the inclusion of sports throw you off though - the beauty and educational value of these plant collections, including obscure selections rarely observed by the public eye, will captivate everyone from the avid plantsman to the average homeowner. The Arboretum is Accredited at Level IV (the highest level) by the Arbnet Accreditation Program, a recognition held by very few other arboreta in the region. Pets are welcome in most areas of the Arboretum, as long as they are on a leash and picked up after.

First if you live Butterflies you have to see the butterfly garden. It is unique and full of host plants and nectar plants. This is a wonderful place to see what trees and scrubs look like as they grow... trees are labled with names. Also great to get ideas for your yard. Go to the Boone County Extension Office website for a lust if classes they hold there. We just attended a class to tag Monarch Butterflies.
