Po ukoncení težby v roce 1920 bylo dno vycišteno a ponecháno bez úprav – presto, že se nabízely možnosti rekultivace. Po této "akci" se nic moc nedelo, casem zde vzniklo fotbalové hrište s kabinami a tribunkou pro diváky. Az v roce 1996 soukromou iniciativou byl areál oplocen a prestaven na Arboretum se znacným výskytem zkamenelin, jejich výskyt je vskutku masivní a pocet se odhaduje na 600 druhu, což z této oblasti delá význacné paleotologické nalezište.

Botanical garden and arboretum in Štramberk is situated in the territory of an old limestone quarry called "Dolní Kamenárka" and its surroundings. The ground is very rugged, with a sizable overtopping. The present area of the newly planted garden is almost 10 hectares. First plants were planted here in 1999. Calciphilous and thermophile vegetation of the Štramberk origin represents the main part of the future exposition of the rock garden. At its bottom there is a unique limestone marshland rich in water plants. Nature lovers will take delight in the stone labyrinth with the old quarry amphitheatre or the newly discovered cave with gorge and rock climbing marked - out lines on some cliffs.
