About Schoepfle Garden
Owned and managed by the Lorain County Metro Park system, Schoepfle Garden is located in Erie County near the Lorain/Erie county line.
Schoepfle Garden is 70 acres of botanical gardens and natural woodland bordered on one side by the Vermilion River. The garden features collections of rhododendrons, roses, cannas, hostas, shade plants, and varieties of shrubs, topiaries, and trees. Enjoy the natural beauty of the garden by participating in a guided tour or wandering at you own pace.
The nearly fifty acres of natural woodlands that lie between the gardens and the Vermilion River add a contrast to the formal and shade gardens. This natural area offers a seasonal display of indigenous trees and wildflowers—a great place for wildflower hikes, birding and tracking. There’s plenty of wildlife here as in other parks in the Lorain County Metro Park system, including deer, wild turkey and fox.
