Stopped in with our family while we were visiting Dubuque. Bonus..it was free. The surroundings were beautiful! Our boys loved the coy pond. Fish food is for sale in the gift shop for $1...buy some. The gardens are well maintained and inviting. I enjoyed the abundant variety of plants and tress. After feeding the coy and strolling through the gardens we ate a picnic in the park.

One of my favorite attractions & it's free !!! What a beautiful place to visit when in Dubuque. The beauty is the Arboretum just keeps getting better. Volunteers provide most of the care & each year something new has been added.

Any little green, flowery oasis is a welcome spot to stroll and reflect, or sit in the sun. They host concerts on Sunday evenings in the summer and it is a delightful venue - bring a chair. The volunteers do an amazing job, the flowers are abundant and beautiful. Take a picnic.

The Dubuque Arboretum is a photographers dream. Flowers, trees, ponds, waterfalls, gazebos and a learing center.

The efforts of amny volunteers, master gardeners, and skilful novices, have made this garden a worthwhile destination. The Japanese gardens are fantastic.
