The Arboretum is the state's 100-acre botanical garden.
A unique attraction is the Walk Across Kentucky, accessible by a two-mile paved walk that includes a unique collection of Kentucky native plants.
The Arboretum is owned and operated by the University of Kentucky and the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) with the support of the Friends of The Arboretum, our member organization. The Friends of The Arboretum helps ensure that The Arboretum remains a premier public botanical garden, outdoor classroom, and urban sanctuary.
