Developed by James Arnold, who left it to Harvard University upon his death. Today, the 265-acre grounds are home to over 4000 types of trees, maintained by Harvard's School of Botany. A botanical garden for students to learn and city dwellers to enjoy is the combination that makes The Arboretum so special. The Jamaica Pond also makes up part of the peaceful surroundings and is located a short distance away.
Best for Outdoor Activities Because: The Arnold Arboretum lets you wander the hilly landscape learning about botany and enjoying their scheduled events.
