Learn. Play. Grow.
The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is a unique destination in Northwest Arkansas that draws more than 80,000 visitors a year. The Garden is a collection of twelve themed gardens and includes the region’s only butterfly house. Our mission is to provide educational, entertainment, and recreational opportunities for students, residents, and Garden visitors to increase their appreciation of the native and natural ecosystem of the Ozarks.
Our education programs include workshops, classes, and lectures for adults in horticulture, conservation, and other topics of interest to gardeners of all skill levels and others who admire the beauty and science of the natural world. The majority of our education programs are for children of all ages. We work with area school districts to provide hands-on nature and science learning experiences. Our programs such as Little Sprouts, Earth Day, Explore@BGO, Butterfly Days, and Firefly Fling offer unique outdoor experiences to thousands of children each year.

Admission: $7 for adults (ages 13 & over); $4 for children (ages 5-12); free for children 4 and under.
Always free for BGO Members!
Unfortunately, the Bullwick Farms Pumpkin Patch at the botanical garden will be closing, effective immediately. After much consideration, it’s been decided it is in both parties’ best interests to discontinue the pumpkin patch. We know many of you have been anticipating coming out here for this, and we apologize for any inconvenience.
