The Webster Arboretum is a place where people will visit a unique garden of natural beauty. The site is multi-use to include leisure, educational and cultural activities in a natural setting. It also enhances awareness of the value, beauty and need for protection of our botanical resources. Our goal is to create a park-like setting dedicated to quiet reflection, beauty, sight, smell and sounds of nature. We also aim at reflecting on the past, providing for the present and leaving a memorial and vision of the future. People of all ages will find something rewarding whether walking, listening to nature or a band, studying and observing nature or resting.
