University of Maryland Arboretum and Botanical Garden

1600 Service Building
College Park, MD 20742


The goals of our Campus Arboretum are:

To display our campus landscape, forestry, plants, and natural heritage dating from the University’s beginnings to the present,

To educate our community and visitors about our campus’s natural environment, and

To model UMD’s vision of a green university.

There are many lovely gardens in our 1250 acre campus, including the Garden of Reflection and Remembrance at Memorial Chapel, the Peace and Friendship Garden near University House, and others. 

At the Arboretum Outreach Center near Stadium Drive and the Denton community, we hold garden-related events and activities. We also have self-guided tours, such as the Photo Safari and Walking Tour, and the McKeldin Mall Tree Walk.
