The Arboretum grounds will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC on SATURDAY, JUNE 10 for ART in the Garden.
REEVES-REED ARBORETUM IS A BOTANICAL GARDEN - A MUSEUM OF PLANTS - AND WE ASK THAT YOU TREAT THE GROUNDS AND FACILITIES LIKE YOU WOULD ANY OTHER MUSEUM, SO THE PROPERTY CAN BE ENJOYED BY ALL FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!
Here are some ways you can help us:
Group Visits: If you are going to bring a large group to the Arboretum, please give us a call in advance. We can help you plan your visit and avoid conflicts with other large groups, rentals, and activities. We'd love to host your party, family reunion, reception, or business meeting, but there is a rental charge for these and similar events. Picnicking for small groups of up to 6 people is permitted with the use of picnic blankets or on our outdoor tables. If the area is needed for a program, rental, or other activity, you may be asked to move. All trash must be taken with you when you depart.
Accessibility for All: Much of the historic gardens and indoor spaces of Reeves-Reed Arboretum are accessible to all visitors, with ramps and paved pathways for easy maneuverability. However, due to the garden's naturally varied topography, portions of our historical site may not be easily accessed without assistance. We do not have wheelchairs available for rent onsite. Reeves-Reed Arboretum offers:
Reeves-Reed Arboretum strives to make every visitor welcome to our grounds and buildings, and plans are underway to increase accessibility for all. When planning your visit, please let us know if there is any service we can provide to make your experience more pleasant. If you are arriving by car, please pull up to the automatic gate for it to open.
