210-acre botanical garden of the University of Arkansas is situated on a woodland peninsula with 4.5 miles of shoreline on Lake Hamilton. 

The garden features rocky inclines reminiscent of the surrounding Ouachita Mountains, floral landscapes, streams, and waterfalls in a natural woodland setting, plus the highly-regarded Garden of the Pine Wind Japanese Garden with Japanese maples and tree peonies, a conifer border, and various flower and rock gardens. 

The garden displays hundreds of rare shrubs and trees, including camellias, magnolias, roses and more than 160 different types of azaleas. Waterfalls, streams, bridges, pavilions and more enhance the landscape.
