Botanical garden greenhouses.

University of Oulu Botanical Gardens are located in the main campus of University of Oulu in Linnanmaa district in Oulu, Finland on the shore of Lake Kuivasjärvi. Botanical gardens were moved to Linnanmaa from the Hupisaaret Islands park near the city centre in summer 1983. Gardens are part of the department of biology at the university.[1]

Total area of botanical gardens is 16 hectares. While outdoor gardens grow plants suitable for local weather, there are two pyramid-shaped greenhouses housing plants from warmer climatic zones. The two pyramids have been named as Romeo and Juliet.[1]
