It’s that time of year! Spring has finally sprung. Blossoms and blooms are all around Green Bay.
While you enjoy the warming of the weather, here’s a list of the top places to check out the spring blossoms:
One of the best places to see spring blossoms is in Green Bay’s Botanical Garden. With over 300,000 blooms from tulips and daffodils to hyacinths, these bright blooms are an absolute delight. The Botanical Garden is the perfect place to visit with a family. Little ones can enjoy the children’s garden and play on the playground.
Pamperin Park is located near duck creek, within the limits of metropolitan Green Bay. The park has beautiful rose bushes and peonies that are delightful when blooming. Pamperin Park is a beautiful place to take photos of wildlife, flowers, and the structures in the park. Packing a picnic and walking around to enjoy the blooms is a great way to spend a warm, spring afternoon.
The Bay Beach Wildlife Sanctuary is free and open to the public year-round. With an extensive trail system, the Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place to see wildflowers. Along the trails, you can find Virginia bluebells, trillium, and trout lilies. On Mondays and Wednesdays, you can join a group trail walk and take in the beauty of spring.

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s Pollinator Habitat
At the NWTC Green Bay Campus, ground has been broken on a half-acre pollinator habitat. This new habitat will feature a variety of native plant species to help support the local pollinators. Planting will begin in June and we can’t wait to see this beautiful display of flowers that will support our natural ecosystem.
