The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University is the oldest public arboretum in North America and one of the world's leading centers for the study of plants. A unique blend of beloved public landscape and respected research institution, we provide and support world-class research, horticulture and education programs that foster the understanding, appreciation and preservation of trees.
There's not many other places in the city where you can wander around a green space for hours. The trails have different personalities depending on the time of day, and if you hike (used loosely) to the top of Peter's Hill, you'll have a pretty sweet view of the Boston skyline right over the trees.
