Hours & Admission

The Arboretum grounds are open dawn to dusk, 365 days a year.  

Our offices are located in the Francis Cope House.  Office hours Spring through Autumn are generally Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and Tuesday – Friday, 9am-5pm during the Winter.

On Saturday and Sunday, guests are welcome to visit the Arboretum; please note that there is no weekend access to the buildings, except for special events or by arrangement.

There may be times when the Cope House is rented for private functions.  When this is the case, we welcome visitors to enjoy the many other areas of the Arboretum, including the picnic area by the Washington Lane train station and the adjacent meadow.

Admission: FREE

While your admission is free, your experience at the Arboretum will be truly priceless. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and members, we are able to make our Arboretum accessible to everyone.  Please consider donating to Awbury here.
