College Station, TX 77840

About Us:

The D.A. "Andy" Anderson Arboretum, originally called the Brazos County Arboretum, was founded in 1976 as part of the USA Bicentennial celebration.  The College Station City Council designated that this area would be used as an arboretum, i.e., a place where trees and shrubs are cultivated for educational and scientific purposes.  On 17 wooded acres bounded by the cemetery, Bee Creek and Business 6, the Arboretum contains a shelter and an interpretive trail system that emphasizes native Texas plants.  It was renamed in 1986, in honor of D.A. Anderson, a former Mayor of College Station. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department provided partial funding for this park.  26.5-acre Bee Creek Park is also located here.
