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.
The gardens throughout the arboretum are maintained by local garden clubs. There are 240+ Daylily cultivars! According to gardeners.com, “The daylily’s botanical name, Hemerocallis, means “beauty for a day”, and indeed most daylily flowers open in the morning and die by nightfall.”
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, sometimes, wind chimes.
Wander around the pond and babbling brook.
The path will take you over bridges and through gazebos sprinkled throughout Webster Arboretum.
I bet it’s spectacular in the winter! Because in the summer, the spiders seem to claim it as their own.
