Bushnell Park is an arboretum of rare and native trees. From the beginning, the Reverend Horace Bushnell and Bushnell Park designer Jacob Weidenmann shaped a graceful landscape that included over 150 varieties of trees. Though many of the originals were lost over the years to both age and neglect, the Bushnell Park Foundation led a renovation in the 1980’s and 1990’s that included the planting of 400 additional trees.
The Bushnell Park Foundation recently hired a company to complete a survey of all 482 trees in the park. To view the survey, click on this link.
If you would like to see them for yourself, pick up one of the older “Tree Walk” brochures free of charge on Thursdays when the Arch is open for tours from 12-1:30pm in May-October.
