Founded in 1992 by Jerry Baker, the Baker Arboretum now covers nearly 115 acres. Built on a ridge of rolling hills in the outskirts of Bowling Green Kentucky, the arboretum overlooks Bowling Green and the Western Kentucky University campus.

Working with the tree and art collections, landscape architect Mitchell Leichhardt (1924-2015) designed a tapestry of trees and art. Featuring many varieties of dogwoods, magnolias and other flowering trees, woven among the conifers and Japanese maples.

Visitors will enjoy year-round highlights. Not only spring and summer blooms, but also the fall color, featuring over 160 Japanese maples and the winter beauty of the conifers.
