There are an abundance of outdoor activities available to all who live in Portland. The Hoyt Arboretum is one place that offers trails, programs, rentals, as well as the chance to view rare and endangered plants. Because of the temperate Pacific Northwest climate, the arboretum has the ability to house a wide variety of plants, some of which you would have to travel around the world for another chance to view them. Enjoy a stroll around the grounds by yourself or with friends, go on a guided tour, attend an event or class, or consider hosting your wedding or other special event at the Hoyt Arboretum.
A short drive for Portland property owners, the arboretum is located just two miles west of downtown Portland. Come out for a tour that occurs most Saturdays April through October. Learn more about the plants from a guide on the 90 minute tour that leaves from the Visitor Center at 12 p.m. All who live in Portland are also invited to consider becoming a member of Hoyt Arboretum. This property exists because of generous people that become members or donate when they visit. Choose a membership for as little as $25 or as much as $1,000. Enjoy perks such as a 10% discount at the gift shop, free guided tours, discounts on classes, and invitations to member only events. Visit Hoyt Arboretum to learn more about getting out and enjoying the great outdoors close to home.
