The UMN Native American Medicine Garden
The Healing and Medicinal Garden recognizes that the university sits on the traditional lands of the Dakota Nation and offers healing, food and medicine plants for students at the University as well as the public.
Nestled along the shores of Silver Lake, and with a focus on arts and the environment, Silverwood Park is unique in the metro area. Minutes from a busy freeway, it offers visitors an opportunity to relax in tranquil beauty and provides inspiration for artists. Trails offering spectacular views of Silver Lake, restored prairie, and mature oak forests circle the park and provide inspiration to all.
