A free public garden, the Allen Centennial Gardens are small yet pretty impactful. A stroll around this place can be highly relaxing with the many varieties of flowers here that linger their sweet fragrance. The campus features the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences’ dean’s house. This house is one of the main highlights of the property that overlooks the luscious garden. They drive their name from bacteriologist Oscar Allen and his wife Ethel’s doings that lead to the groundbreaking of the property.

Allen Centennial Gardens Reviews & Ratings
I attended a work wellness event at the Allen Centennial Gardens. What a fantastic resource on the UW-Madison campus that is free to everyone who wants to learn more about this garden and plants in general. I have been to this cute garden a hand full of times in the past, but have never taken a formal tour of it. I'm so glad that I took a tour!
It is a beautiful garden! Clearly a lot of thought, care and creativity has gone into it. It is a wonderful place to relax and be with nature. One of my favorite WISC spots.
Beautiful well manicured gardens. Available parking is a bit of an issue to enjoy but no different from other areas downtown or on campus.
The nearest garden by my dorm (Turner hall, Kronshage drive) I love this place. I am usually going there when I have time. there have special events frequency that might make your day.
My husband and I were married at Allen Centennial in the English Gardens on 6/15/2019. It was such a fairytale! We had to pay to rent the arch and also paid a rental company to bring chairs and sound equipment, so those are not included in the rental price. But the ceremony was such a dream come true and our 200 guests loved it, so it was worth every penny!
