Beautiful all year long, Webster Arboretum is the perfect place to stroll and quietly observe nature. It is equally a great place for families to explore nature in a safe and easily-navigable way.
You immediately observe that this is a space the caretakers care deeply about.
Winding pathways & trails
Follow the pathways that meander around 40 acres of open spaces, flower & herb gardens, water elements, and a wide variety of trees. The walkways are primarily flat, hard-packed gravel. Rest by the pond or in the gazebo and listen to the sounds of birds and wind chimes.
Wander around the pond and babbling brook.
The path will take you over beautiful bridges and through gazebos.
I bet it’s spectacular in the winter! The maze is a beautiful escape from the world.

Rather than an escape, I prefer to think of these as transcending places that encourage us to transcend space, time, and state of mind.
Rochester became a global center for flower and tree nurseries in the mid-1800s, fostering our identity as The Flower City.
Our nature centers, wildlife preserves, management areas, etc., all serve to protect and sustain life, while making nature accessible to people to enjoy and learn from.
