The Turku University Botanical Garden operating on the Island of Ruissalo is both a centre for scientific research and a public showcase for the fascinating world of plants.

The outdoor and indoor gardens display over 5000 species and varieties of plants. In the greenhouses are a wide range of succulent plants and a collection of tropical species. Flourishing in the outdoor garden are rhododendrons, peonies, annuals, economic plants, meadow flowers, exotic trees and shrubs, to name a few. A distinguishing feature of the new landscape are the three ponds containing colourful waterlilies and other wetland plants.

Here it is possible to hold meetings, training sessions and private events, with exhibitions held in the outdoor gardens, greenhouses, seminar hall and cafeteria (which is also available for dining).

The greenhouses are wheelchair accessible, with some assistance, as is the majority of the outdoor area.
