LISLE, Ill. — The Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois, is set to launch ‘Wonder Woods Mini Golf,’ a unique, tree-themed nine-hole mini golf course, in the summer of 2024. Open from May 24 to September 2, the interactive course is designed to appeal to all ages and will highlight the Arboretum’s tree research through engaging and playful experiences.

According to Amy Scott, head of exhibitions at the Arboretum, each hole will creatively bring tree science to life. The course, exclusively designed by the Arboretum, will feature whimsical elements at each hole, demonstrating various scientific concepts such as tree decay detection and the history embedded in tree rings.

Scott emphasizes the course’s uniqueness, with inventive elements like a foosball-inspired hole and a Chicago skyline replica showcasing an urban tree canopy. The course also aims to educate players about the environmental benefits of trees, like climate change mitigation and ecosystem support, through visually striking designs.

The Morton Arboretum aims to foster a connection between people and trees, encouraging environmental stewardship through engaging activities like this mini golf course. The attraction will operate daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets will be sold in addition to general Arboretum admission, with varying prices for members and non-members. The adjacent ‘Of the Earth’ sculpture exhibition will continue through spring 2025.
