PARKING

Parking on the Arboretum grounds is extremely limited and fills up quickly on weekends. Additional parking is available in a satellite lot at the Running Center, just east of the Arboretum’s entrance on Woodway Drive. It is a pleasant quarter mile hike under the Memorial Park Living Bridge to the park’s entrance. Be aware that spaces in the Nature Center lot may be cordoned off for class and event attendees.
