Biographical Info

Taltree Arboretum & Gardens is a dog-friendly* oak preserve of formal gardens, woodlands, wetlands and prairies that offers a variety of events, classes and exhibits year-round.

Located approximately 25 miles from the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and 60 miles southeast of Chicago in Valparaiso, Indiana, Taltree offers beautiful vistas, quiet corners and hiking trails to escape into its diverse landscape.

Taltree is home to 112 unique oak taxa–one of the most diverse oak collections in the nation. The centerpieces of the collection are the Bur Oaks. Other North American, Asian and European species can be seen in the Oak Islands exhibit.

Our most intricate formal garden is the Taltree Railway Garden. This garden features model steam trains in a miniature conifer and woody plant landscape. The garden tells the story of early 19th century U.S. railroad history featuring scenes of the Civil War, westward expansion and the American Industrial Revolution.

*In the Railway Garden and Depot Visitors Center, we ask that dogs stay outside. Tie-up poles are provided for your convenience.
