Waterfront Botanical Gardens is transforming the former Ohio Street Dump atop the historic Point Neighborhood at the intersection of River Road and Frankfort Avenue. The 23-acre site includes completion of four acres of Phase I development, with the two-acre Japanese Garden construction under way. Learn more about us at our full website.
Our Gardens Explorer gives you access to our living plant collections database as well as listing of outdoor features. It is accessible from most computers, smartphones and tablets anywhere around the world with internet connectivity.
If you wish to see specific plants in the Gardens but don’t know where to find them, you may use the Search function by using the scientific or common name or by plant family. Plants will be displayed with their placement in the Gardens as well as additional information. If you would like to see a planting list within a specific garden area, you may also search by Location (this is difficult unless you know the names of specific garden beds).
The Names function displays lists of existing plants according to the first letter of the botanical genus name.
Use the Map function to zoom in on a specific location in the Gardens to obtain a list of all the plants growing in that area. Use the maps while out in the Gardens, from your own home, or out at your local garden center to remember the name of that special plant you would like for your own landscape. This function is best done on a large screen lap- or desktop computer.
In the Features function, select the non-living bench, column, engraved brick, water feature, sculpture piece or sponsored tree as well as any part of a donor or artist name to locate features on the property. Then run a search. Click on the map symbols for more detailed info.
The Reset button allows you to clear your screen and to start a new search.
