Aim of the botanical garden was primarily to provide an educational help. Before the 2nd World War the garden could show up already almost five hundred tree species and more than thousand herb species, part of which were brought into greenhouses for the winter. In 1958 the area of the botanical garden was enlarged by 4 hectares with the support of the city council, in 1965 with further 4,5 hectares.
A thematic reorganisation of the garden started also in the 1960-ies. The pathways, the alpinetum and the parts introducing the species of each continent were created at this time. The evergreen collection of the garden is famous Europe-wide. The botanical garden is managed today by the Faculty of Forestry of the University of West Hungary.
The Botanical Garden can be visited all year round free of charge.
