A Place to Enjoy the Beauty & Wonder of Nature

The Orange County Arboretum is located in the Thomas Bull Memorial Park, Hamptonburgh, New York. The 35 acres of rolling former pasturelands and wooded areas are an environmental resource and garden whose primary purpose is the display of tree collections. These collections are placed to contribute to a learning experience organized around botanical family relationships, tree habitats and wetland characteristics. The wooded borders of the six acre Al Durland Memorial Pond back the Arboretum. In the distance visitors can view the dramatic profile of the Shawangunk Mountains. The Arboretum offers a venue to compare and evaluate plants. Others may look to the Arboretum as a resource for learning about plant selections for environmental enhancements.

Students may enjoy the site as an outdoor living laboratory to study and identify the various species. Homeowners can examine tree and shrub varieties for possible use in their landscape design. Everyone can come to the green sanctuary to escape the stress of everyday life by taking a leisurely stroll from one garden to another.
