Holden Gazebo

Weddings and Facility Rental

The Northland Arboretum, located in the heart of Brainerd and Baxter, was founded with the closure of the Brainerd landfill in 1972.  The 540+ acre green space is a member supported non-profit that focuses on education, recreation and conservation.  This unique property has beautiful gardens tucked beneath mature trees that make it a glorious place to have an outdoor wedding.

The Visitor Center has two levels, each with their own kitchenette, to host celebrations.  The upper level room looks out onto a gorgeous deck and boasts high timber framed ceilings.  The lower level decor has recently been updated and spills out into a downstairs pavilion area.

No matter what the season, the Northland Arboretum is perfect place to host your party or wedding.   Give us a call at the Arb, 829-8770, to secure your date!
