The mission of the Schedel Arboretum & Gardens is to offer life enriching experiences, for current and future generations, by providing unique opportunities for the appreciation and study of nature and the arts."  The 17 acre garden estate is home to many unusual species of plant life uniquely incorporated into a landscape loving sculpted by human hands. 

NEW IN 2021:  Schedel is pleased to announce the opening of the Blair Museum of Lithophanes (3-dimensional translucent porcelain plaques which when back-lit reveal detailed images).  The collection is the largest in the world consisting of some 2,300 pieces and is the only lithophane museum in the United States.  Originally donated by collector Laurel Blair to the City of Toledo in 1993, the collection was housed in Mr. Blair's Old West End Toledo home until his death.  In July 2020, that collection was donated to the gardens.
