Tree Walk in Bushnell Park
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.
