The Northern Plains Botanic Garden is a collection of gardens located on 6 acres of Fargo Park District land at Yunker Park at 1211 28th Ave. N., Fargo, ND 58102. The gardens show an array of plants from cool woodlands to hot, dry or even watery habitats, and showcase garden design ideas for the different habitats.

Hummingbird Patio

While visiting our butterfly garden, take a rest nearby on the bench in the hummingbird garden and patio. It is a small quiet place to relax and watch for the incredible ruby-throated hummingbirds.

Chrysanthemum Garden

Visit the gardens of the chrysanthemum. It is a garden that remains green throughout the spring and summer, and it blazes into bloom when most other plants have declined for the season.

Alerus Financial Butterfly Garden

A visit to the butterfly garden will be alluring to both adults and children alike. The incredible scents of the blooming fauna will bring you the realization of why butterflies are attracted to this area over and over again.

Rain Garden

The rain garden absorbs all of the run-off from the greenhouse roof to filter into the soil below.

Woodland Garden

Enter the soothing realm of the woodland garden and exit life's hectic pace. Take a leisurely stroll through the winding path and over the bridge spanning the dry creek bed.

Dry Garden

This garden features Sumac and "Spring Wonder" Sargent Cherry Trees and will lead to future plans of a Japanese garden.

Children's Garden

Encompassing the Alphabet Garden, Sensory Garden, and Kid's Activity Zone, the Children's Garden has something to delight all ages.


This will be a demonstration garden showing planting techniques and good environmental growing practices for a fruit and nut forest.
