Located on Larsen Road, the Green Bay Botanical Garden is a 47-acre garden that opened in 1996 at the location that was originally the Larsen Orchard.
The botanical garden consists of several areas such as the Agnes Schneider Terrace with its ornamental grasses and perennial flowers, the John and Janet Van Den Wymelenberge Color and Foliage Garden with lovely foliage in shades of chartreuse, gray, green, maroon, and yellow, and the Mary Hendrickson Johnson Wisconsin Woodland Garden with its native shrubs, trees, and wildflowers. The Green Bay Botanical Garden is one of the best things to do in Green Bay for the whole family.
Other features of the garden include a fountain, a gazebo, a rose garden, a well house, and a children’s garden with a maze, slide, sundial, and tree house.
