Plan Your Visit

The Newton Arboretum & Botanical Gardens is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public garden. We cultivate multiple garden landscapes to enrich, inspire, and educate, as well as provide a space to decompress. The garden is a natural place to slow down and open your senses. A place to appreciate the beauty of plants, watch pollinators at work, hear waterfalls flowing, identify birdsong, feel the sun and the wind, a place to breathe in the fragrance of the flowers.

For the best experience, we recommend sun protection, comfortable shoes, and a reusable water bottle.
