New Hanover County Arboretum

Open daily from dawn to dusk and no admission fee. The Arboretum is a unique, 7-acre park with FREE admission, in the heart of New Hanover County where homeowners can see the variety of plants that grow in our coastal area as well as emerging trends in plant material. Cooperative Extension’s “horticulture laboratory”, the Arboretum has a very knowledgeable staff and many volunteers working to make the gardens beautiful and educational. Come out and discover what makes us so extraordinary! The Arboretum is open to the public and is FREE!
