People tend to check in during these times:
beautiful park with scenic views. I've been looking for a good, T-accessible natural space for a long walk since moving to Boston; I'm so glad I finally found one.
A lovely place to take a walk, or just hang out.
So many trails to choose from. You can spend the day here. But mind you, the rule says 'do not picnic'. You can have a snacks though.
Lovely place to go for a stroll! Take the view at the top to see the Boston skyline from a far.
Great for off leash dog walking! Also has a paved road for cycling and jogging
Make sure to stop by the bonsai!
The park is great and not just because of the alliteration of the name. There are a few well maintained areas that are quite pleasing to the eyeballs.
Very special, mystical place. You can get lost in these trees - great day trip!
Always in love
Found this lovely new bench at Peters Hill.
Amazing spot for strolling around and great programs for arboretum members.
Beautiful place to walk
Not much parking, scattered at the entrances. Spread garbage cans and water fountains. Maps are far and few between
Worth the climb to see the skyline!
Just checked out the fall foliage...gorgeous!
The crown jewel of Olmsted's Emerald Necklace, the Arboretum only allows picnicking on one day a year - Lilac Sunday. Hike up Peter's Hill and take in a gorgeous view of the Boston skyline.
Fantastic free gardens
Gorgeous. The big plate was awesome.
Run a few extra miles and join us. We're having a launch event at CitySports on Wednesday at 6pm. Try us on, run with us, become part of us. Here's the link:
Hope you brought your sunblock!
Many small paths to wonder off.
Check out the "aceretum" (a section of the arboretum devoted just to maple trees; it's near the roses) and the Lars Anderson Bonsai Collection (see article on Wikipedia).
The Lars Anderson Bonsai Collection is kept here. There's a wikipedia article about it.
Mother's Day tradition!
great place to hunt down and cook a yuppy puppy. I mean -- if you really had to. Just don't do this during a yoga class. Namaste indeed!
Free tours of the Arnold Arboretum Saturdays at 10:30, Sundays at 1 p.m., and Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. through November. arboretum.harvard.edu
A tree hugger's paradise, Arnold Arboretum is the oldest public arboretum in North America and a great place to take a nature walk inside the city's limits.
Amazing place for you and your dog. There are hidden gems all over the Arboretum.
Avoid the crowds on Lilac Sunday -- come by on Friday or Saturday to enjoy the blooms ahead of Mothers Day!
Beautiful scenery. My dog loves it there. You can walk ur dogs off leash.
The Arboretum was founded in 1872 when the President and Fellows of Harvard College became trustees of a portion of the estate of James Arnold (1781–1868).
Super easy to get to off Orange Line (Forest Hills). Unbelievable colors in late October, and no matter how many people are there, it always feels like you have the place to yourself.
The best kept secret in Jamaica Plain! The trees are grouped by type. Check out the tags to see the name of each species.
Stay on main paths or you'll get lost!
A great place to walk/run/bike.
Great place to bring your dog!
Come during the weekday and have the place to yourself. Best park in Boston!
Amazing bonzai collection!
Have a picnic.
Get to the Arnold before it gets too cold.
