Visit Our Garden Stores

Cox Arboretum MetroPark Garden Store
In May 2014, the Cox Arboretum Foundation board voted to transition the foundation’s Cox Garden Store into an interactive educational hub to better fit the mission of the foundation and arboretum. Hand-made and arb-produced items (terrariums, hypertufas, leaf castings, violets, bat houses, etc.) will continue to be sold in the gallery and the current store space will be transitioned into a visitor hospitality area and eventually become an interactive education hub. The education hub will serve as an introduction for visitors to learn more about the arboretum (and all of Fiver Rivers MetroParks) prior to entering the park/garden areas.
