The Acton Arboretum In Massachusetts Is A Small Patch Of Natural Perfection

Are you a city-dweller looking to escape into nature? Then the Acton Arboretum may be the perfect retreat. Located near Boston but pretty enough to be a day trip destination for Bay Staters everywhere, this lovely complex of gardens and trails is just begging to be visited. 

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Many trails and gardens at the arboretum are handicap accessible. Handicap parking is available at the Taylor Road entrance, Minot Avenue entrance, and the Acton Town Hall. Visit the Acton Arboretum website for more information about visiting rules, hours, and current events.
