    Beautiful gardens and great playground facilities for children
    Went there (family if 5, ages 6, 10 and 13 ) before Velika Planina. Planned to stay there for an hour, ended up spending 3 hours there and could have stayed more. The children especially loved the playground with omegas, trampolines and other facilities. There is also a nice dinosaurs display.

    Beautiful exhibits and location
    We visited on a Saturday which meant that we couldn't get a direct bus, we got one to the village of Radomlje about a kilometre away, but from there it was an easy walk. We both had tourist cards so it was free to get in. Even at 10.00am it was clear that this is immensely popular with the locals and with good reason. The grounds are beautiful and the views are absolutely stunning, particularly when you get to higher ground. There were plenty of cafes and WCs which were well signposted. We spent 3.5 hours here and enjoyed every minute

    Morning at arboretum
    Took a taxi to and from arboretum from ljubljana (30 euros/each way) it did not disappoint. The tulips were gorgeous, the life size dinosaurs and whales were fun. There is also an art event through Sept 2024 which was very fun, large red plastic animals throughout the gardens. There is also a delightful herd of deer hidden in the woods, including ruldolph the red nosed reindeer. Highly recommend a stop here.

In July 2020, 6pm, the garden was almost empty, what a privilege! It is a huge garden, so give it minimum 2 hours. There are many varied flowers, trees, different kind of garden styles. It is just relaxing. The cactus and butterfly exhibitions are very interesting and well cared.
I was impressed by the beautiful amount of Amarillys flowers.

Spring (especially the month of April) is surely the best time to visit Arboretum Volčji Potok, one of the best botanical gardens and parks in the world. At that time there are large colourful tulip fields (more than 2 million tulip samples, one for each Slovenian, from more than 350 different species), tulip forest, narcissus (daffodil) fields, rock garden, trees are blooming with their coloured blossoms, French and English Park revive and you can take a look at exhibitions of cacti, orchids and fairytale characters (especially from Slovenian and Grimm fairytales). At the time of the Slovenian spring holidays (this year it is from 27th April to 2nd May), there are also more exhibitions of cottage-industry and horticultural equipment. In the Arboretum you can see many different plant and tree species, so visiting it is surely a must-do for all nature and horticulture lovers, as well as for biologists, especially botanists.

I must also admit that this place is very nice place for relaxation on a warm sunny day, it is child-friendly with many playgrounds and large movable sculptures of dinosaurs, whales and even mammoth. You can enjoy desserts in the park's coffeehouse, sit on a bench with a brook or forest view and cool yourself around some fountains or with a cup of ice cream. In other words, there is much to do and you will surely enjoy your visit there.

We loved the butterfly house (small but full of colorful butterflies), the cactus and orchid displays (quite small too), just strolling around the beautiful lawns and flowers, and even the dinosaur exhibit (though not related the arboretum aspect) and the playground. A very relaxing visit.

We visited the arboretum on an August afternoon during the Dahlia exhibit. The Dahlias were breathtaking. We also enjoyed the tropical butterfly and orchid exhibits. The French garden is delightful and the entire place has a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere. Highly recommended!

I've been visiting this park for 20 years, and I love it every time. I could spend all my days here. It's located 20 minutes outside of Ljubljana, and perfect for all kinds of travelers, solo, families, elderly,... There are dinosaurs for children and lovely views for everyone else. It is very peaceful. I love coming back here!

Fantastic place to spend a day, far away from urban rush.
You can find the park, the forest, the lake and flower garden in the single place.
I would come here every day if I had a chance, just to recharge my "batteries".

Place for a full day visit. Wonderful garden. Many sculptures, layouts, sculpture products, energy points. It provides long walks in nature. Also suitable for families with small children. The place you can visit many times a year and will always be a lot new for the sight. I recommend viewing every Slovenian and tourist. I'll see Park more than once.

Very nice park but at the time of our visit there were a lot of people for the easter holiday. The big probelm is they dont have a lot of options for the toilets. If you are with a childerden or not is not very pleasant situation. I was looking for some wc sign but i didnt find it. I recomed to put some plastic (dixy) toilets for the next massive visit. The entrance is not for free!!.. that day the park earned a lot of money from all the visitors!!!.. and for that money i would expect at last toilets (dixy wc) on the parking, entrance and some other places, around the children playground and so on... I was very very disapointed!!!

Volčji Potok has something new each year. Spring exhibition has fields of tulips, really nice in nature with mountains behind. Second part with roses is waiting for summer time. Third area is central, French park. It is better than years ago with new fountain and cut edges. Eastern part has more wooden parts, a bee-house, little lake and way to the children’s heaven, playground and area with plastic dinos. Entrance fee is not low but for three to four hours of joy it is OK. For older visitors they have little train and for thirsty people some simple places with refreshments. It is not Keukenhof but with less visitor and perfect mountains a t the back it is really good for families with young children and even people with dogs. Parking is free – but come early (on Saturday or Sunday).
