Boone County Arboretum

Description
Boone County Arboretum is Northern Kentucky's premier arboretum, and one of only a handful in the Cincinnati area. The Arboretum is located just outside Union, KY, only 25 minutes southwest of downtown Cincinnati, OH. Grounds are open daily from dawn to dusk for your year-round enjoyment of more than 3,500 trees and shrubs. There is no charge for admission or parking. At 121 acres, the Boone County Arboretum was the nation's first arboretum within an active recreation park setting - the specialized arrangements of plant collections exist along 2.5 miles of paved multi-use trails which wind around 12 athletic fields.

The mission of the Arboretum is to create a living museum that enriches the quality of life by providing a place for the appreciation and study of plants and the preservation of the natural environment. Boone County Arboretum is funded and operated by the Boone County Cooperative Extension District, Boone County Fiscal Court, with additional fund raising and volunteerism support from the non-profit Friends of Boone County Arboretum.
