Summer into Fall this garden illuminates a great selection of plants that can be grown in this habitat, and spectacular color combinations.15 years ago I first saw Cavolo Lancinato (Dinosaur Kale) being grown as an ornamental. Huge gray leaves in front of red leaved Amaranth. I'm going to use it someday. See their ornamental grasses, one of the nicest displays... More

Walked around the Noerenberg Memorial Gardens, was quite a quiet and relaxing place. I have visited alot of different places from the all over the country so having a place to take a relaxing walk close by is nice.

A very beautiful flower and nature garden located along Lake Minnetonka. Scenic place for wedding pictures, graduation pictures, etc. Flower beds are well maintained. Good butterfly watching area as well as birding.

What a delight... this isn't the Landscape Arboretum, but a historical homestead Gardened estate on Lake Minnetonka... You get in free and come out richer.

Was just taking a drive on Labor Day and passed by this Gardens, looked interesting so we U turned and drove in. What a wonderful relaxing and beautiful place to walk around all the gardens. There is a small pavillion by the lake to just sit and enjoy the view.

I just love going here! Whether to relax, get ideas for my own gardens, sit by the lake, sip my coffee and read or just for a stroll. There are flowers and natural grasses in many beds and landscape areas that are perfect for picture taking and idea stealing. Go here...you'll love it.

Beautiful setting, absolutely worth the drive. The gardens are not big but quite impressive. The view of Lake Minnetonka is gorgeous and completes the experience.

This is such a special place so close to a major metropolitan area. I went there with a friend in September and there was only one other person there. We were able to sit on the deck of the boat house and watch the boats on Lake Minnetonka. It was a beautiful and sunny autumn day-just perfect for enjoying the... More
