Marsh Botanical Gardens

Local nameMarsh Botanical Gardens
LocationNew Haven, Connecticut, USA

The Marsh Botanical Garden is a botanical garden, arboretum, and greenhouses located on the Yale University campus at 265 Mansfield Street, New Haven, Connecticut, United States.

The Garden was established in 1899 when paleontologist Othniel Marsh bequeathed his home, grounds, greenhouses and plant collections to the University. The botanical garden was designed by landscape architect Beatrix Farrand during the 1920s and 1930s as part of her design for the Yale campus. Today the Garden supports research and instruction, and is a public greenspace. Only remnants of Farrand's design remain, although restoration work has begun. The greenhouses contain a desert collection, an orchid room, an extensive collection of plants from tropical regions, and an insectivorous collection.
