Opened in 2019, the Arboretum’s 80-acre Lake Tamarack property is a spectacular natural site with several thousand feet of lakeshore on beautiful Lake Tamarack, diverse wetlands and majestic oaks and maples on the north end of the property.

The property is east of the Arboretum’s Horticultural Research Center, and while some of the property is used for research purposes, a majority of the property is available for fishing and non-motorized boating, as well as hiking, birding and photography. Picnic tables are also available.

Funding for this project was provided by the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Foundation, Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council and Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund, as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.
