Mission Oaks Gardens is a beautiful urban garden located in Zanesville, Ohio. It exists quietly and virtually undetectable from the street in a residential neighborhood. More than seven acres of gardens showcase hundreds of rare and unusual plants including a collection of azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolias and conifers. Perennials, annuals and wildflowers fill the gardens year round. The gardens also feature two waterfalls, a natural bog, perennial garden, walking paths, creek, gazebo and one of the most renowned conifer gardens in the state. The nearly two acre conifer garden displays over 300 trees, many of which are not native to North America. These trees represent more than 90 species within more than 50 genera. In 2010 Mission Oaks Gardens was acquired by the Muskingum Valley Park District through the NRAC Clean Ohio Fund to ensure the preservation of these exceptional gardens for the enjoyment and education of many generations to come. We look forward to seeing you at Mission Oaks Gardens.
