Arboretum

Since 2007 Wickham Park has been labeling many of our native and ornamental trees and shrubs, which will allow visitors to identify, study, and compare the park’s living collections.  Labels include common name, Latin (scientific) name, and native geographic range.   Most of the labeled trees are in the Sensory, Oriental, and Lotus Gardens, but many are located throughout the park. Currently there are approximately 250 labeled trees and shrubs and the Park strives to add new varieties to its collection each year.

Guided Tree tours are offered each spring and a self-guided tree tour map is available at the front gate.  Planning and planting is underway for the addition of a new Pinetum (collection of conifers) to the west of the entrance gate and is designed to ultimately contain about 100 trees
