Once a hidden treasure, portions of the Baker Arboretum are now open to the public on a regular basis with an accompanying tour of the Downing Museum. Visitors are invited to walk the first two tiers of the Arboretum surrounding the Museum during open hours Tuesday through Saturday, or make a reservation to see more of the grounds when available.

The Baker Arboretum and the Downing Museum were built on the outskirts of Bowling Green, with views of Western Kentucky University and the surrounding rolling hills. The Baker Arboretum serves as an educational and research facility for WKU.

The collection features conifers, Asian Maples, flowering trees and shrubs with art woven throughout. With over 600 species and 1200 varieties or cultivars, the Baker Arboretum explores the vast palette of plants that can grow in western Kentucky.

Year round interest includes spring and summer flowers, spectacular fall foliage and the subtle beauty of the winter with the interesting shapes, colors and bark of conifers and other trees.
