Noerenberg Memorial Garden is known for its tranquility and spectacular beauty. Situated along the shore of Crystal Bay on Lake Minnetonka, Noerenberg is widely regarded as one of the finest formal gardens in Minnesota. Among its blend of perennials, annuals, trees, shrubs, and vines the garden features ornamental shade trees and a stand of conifers, an extensive daylily collection, and "Northern Lights" azaleas.
Lora Noerenberg Hoppe, one of the five Noerenberg children, acted as chief horticulturist of the gardens for a number of years. She bequeathed the estate to the Park District in 1972.
