Family Weekend

Murray State's annual Family Weekend gives families a chance to visit and enjoy fun activities together on campus.

The Doran Arboretum at Murray State

The Arboretum at Murray State University is a public educational display garden located on the Pullen Farm at Murray State and a favorite destination for people of all ages. Take a stroll, go for a run, or walk your leashed dog on our 0.8 mile long track (bicycles are not allowed). Wander through our student-maintained gardens and view our ever growing collections of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees. Check out the view of the 40+ acre Pullen Farm from on top of the "Mountain." See how many butterflies you can spot on our Butterfly Garden next to the pond while you play on our Butterfly themed Play Pocket.

The Arboretum is open daily from dawn until dusk.
