Family hikes are opportunities for children and adults to explore the Arboretumís landscape together.

Next hike: Play in the Cold! Sunday, February 19, 1:00-2:30pm

Families need nature at all times of the year! We will find a place to play together. If thereís snow we can make snow angels, snow humans, and more! If thereís no snow, we can still play simple, active games for young and old alike.

Afterwards, families are invited to come inside the Visitor Center to warm up with cookies and cocoa.

Meet inside the Arborway Gate at 125 Arborway. Street parking is available outside most entrance gates, along the Arborway, Bussey Street, and the Arboretum perimeter. There is no visitor parking inside the Arboretum.
