Noerenberg Memorial Gardens is known for its beauty. It has been part of the Three Rivers Park District since being donated by Lora Noerenberg in 1972. She earned a degree in Horticulture from the University of Minnesota and was the chief horticulturist for the estate for some years. The gardens are on Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota. Noerenberg is recognized as one of the finest formal gardens in the state. Among its blend of perennials, annuals, trees, shrubs, and vines, the garden features ornamental shade trees and a stand of conifers, an extensive daylily collection, and “Northern Lights” azaleas. Tours are available, and weddings are even held on the property.

The only Magnolia tree I have seen in Minnesota is in the garden, which is so well taken care of it is impressive. It looks like it lives in the south where trees have more opportunity to grow beautifully. Previously, I have blogged about another park in the Three Rivers Park District, Eastman Nature Center. They have 27,000 acres of parks and trails.
