The Arboretum at Murray State University is a public educational display garden located on the Pullen Farm of Murray State University.

Come take a stroll, go for a run, or walk your leashed dog on our 0.8 mile long track, but remember to leave your bike at home.

Wander through our student-maintained gardens and view our ever growing collection of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees. Check out the view of the 40+ acre Pullen Farm from on top of the "Mountain." See how many butterflies you can spot in our new Butterfly Garden next to the pond while you play on our Butterfly themed Play Pocket.

These are only a few examples of what The Arboretum at Murray State has to offer. Come out during daylight hours and explore for yourself!

Reserve an area like our large pavilion or one of your smaller pavilions for your next party, shower, or reception. Book us for your wedding, no one can compete with our price!
