The Wanderwood Gardens

The Wanderwood Gardens is an enchanting setting for discovery and imaginative play. This new children’s garden will cultivate children’s relationships with the outdoors through interacting with the natural and man-made playgrounds surrounding them. The gardens are filled with a variety of flowers, trees, and plants, with magical activity areas and winding paths that lead to hidden nooks and crannies, creating an active nature’s playground for all ages. The Wanderwood Gardens will be connected to The Dubuque Arboretum and located at 3800 Arboretum Dr. in Dubuque.

The inspiration for The Wanderwood Gardens stems from Debi and Andy Butler’s granddaughters and their love for flowers and nature. The Butlers dreamt of a place where their family can explore, play, and enjoy the beauty of nature. The Wanderwood Gardens is meant to be a truly magical place for people of all ages to experience the wonders of the natural world, and a place full of joy and imagination for visitors for many years to come.
