Besides being one of the most pleasant attractions in the area, the Boerner Botanical Gardens also serve as a living museum. Named after master landscape artist Alfred L. Boerner, the garden is also intended to educate visitors about the Beaux Art principles through its extensive collection of plants, trees, and flowers as well as its impressive landscape design.
At the Boerner Botanical Gardens, visitors may enjoy viewing numerous interesting sights, including one of the state?s biggest collections of crab apples. Visitors may also purchase souvenirs and educational materials at the Gift Shop or dine at the in-site Nell?s Garden Cafe or take advantage of the regular Sunday brunch prepared by the Bartolotta Catering Company.
Those who wish to celebrate their most important corporate or personal events may take advantage of the garden?s spectacular 2-story atrium, which takes advantage of the most dramatic natural and artificial lighting with its vaulted ceilings.
