University of Oulu Botanical Gardens are located in the main campus of University of Oulu in Linnanmaa district in Oulu, Finland on the shore of Lake Kuivasjärvi. Botanical gardens were moved to Linnanmaa from the Hupisaaret Islands park near the city centre in summer 1983. Gardens are part of the department of biology at the university.
Total area of botanical gardens is 16 hectares. While outdoor gardens grow plants suitable for local weather, there are two pyramid-shaped greenhouses housing plants from warmer climatic zones. The two pyramids have been named as Romeo and Juliet.

  • We had a function in this venue. It was apt as the participants spoke about agri products and services. The garden greenhouses are not huge but house a wide collection of flora from the tropics and temperate regions. It was pleasant to roam in the greenhouses Julia and Romeo.
  • Place worth visiting even if you aren't a big fan of flowers. Place has three main sections. Tropical, not so tropical and the outdoor section during summertime. Beautiful exotic flowers of many shapes and sizes. Last time I went the entry was free and there is a place at the entry where you can leave your jackets and stuff. I visit there regularly because different flowers bloom in different times.
