Allen Centennial Garden is on a 2.5 acre site with 22 different gardening styles from around the world. Featured are promanent herbaceous and woody ornamental cultivars labeled with scientific and common names. The gardens surround a historic Victorian home that once served as a residence for university deans.

Although the gardens are considered primarily a teaching tool in such areas as horticulture, botany, entomology and plant pathology, they are popular also among art students, public industry groups, garden clubs, grades K through 12, and the general public.

The gardens are open daily from sunrise to sunset and admission is free. The gardens can also be reserved for weddings and parties. Allen Centennial Garden is located at the corner of Observatory and Babcock Drives.

For inquiries about making a contribution to the gardens, contact Jodi Wickham, University of Wisconsin Foundation, 608-263-2027 jodi.wickham@supportuw.org
