The Garden Is Open in 2021

Steps from University of Michigan Hospital and central campus, the Nichols Arboretum Peony Garden is easy to visit and open from sunrise to sunset.

  • Many food options are available nearby in several of the University Hospitals, on central campus, and downtown Ann Arbor.
  • Picnics are welcome (no cooking or campfires allowed inside the Arboretum).

The peony garden is near the Washington Heights entrance to the Arb. It's convenient for pedestrians, persons taking the AATA or University of Michigan buses, and near major roads. Parking options vary by day and time. More information by transportation type is at the link below


When to Visit

Peonies are seasonal - so consider this information if your schedule allows it. Otherwise, the Arb is open sunrise to sunset every day.


Touring the Peony Garden

Self-guided tours are the best way to deepen your understanding of the peony collection.
