Mt. Washington Arboretum

The Mount Washington Arboretum began in 1999 under the auspices of the Mt. Washington Preservation Trust. Once a flooded apartment complex, the Arboretum is now home to a pond with waterfall, storage shed, retaining walls, pergolas, benches, entrance kiosk, interpretive signs, entrance archway with tiles by children from the Mt. Washington School, two green roofs with water storage, a mural,  a council ring (a la Jens Jensen), and a meeting pavilion. Peruse the paths, marvel at the plants and structures, and more on a trip to the Mount Washington Arboretum.
