About The Dawes Arboretum
Explore. Experience. Enjoy.
It's that simple. The Dawes Arboretum is here for you to explore, experience, and enjoy.
Founded in 1929 by Beman and Bertie Dawes, The Arboretum now covers nearly 1,800 acres and includes eight miles of hiking trails and a four-mile Auto Tour. Come see some of our more than 15,000 living plants. Relax in our Japanese Garden. Hike through our Deep Woods or Dutch Fork Wetlands. Climb our Observation Tower for an amazing view.
The Dawes Arboretum is a private, non-profit organization. The grounds are open 7am until dusk year-round. We are closed only on New Year's, Thanksgiving and Christmas days. Admission is free. We hope to see you soon!
