The Kenosha County Center is located at Highway 45 and 50 in Bristol. The Center houses the Departments of Planning and Development, Housing Authority, Human Service, Public Works, UW-Extension, and the Elected Officials Office.

The Kenosha County Prairie & Arboretum lines the one-mile walking trail loop in the prairie area just north of the County Center building, located at highways 45 and 50 in Bristol.

Open to the public, it is most easily accessed from the northeast corner of the parking lot on the west side of the building.

Visitors to the arboretum can take a guided tour, via a brochure that is available at the Extension office in the County Center, or by download at https://kenosha.extension.wisc.edu/kcc-arboretum/. The trees are also marked with placards that include a QR code, linking smartphone users to more information about them on the Extension website.
