Located in the Jamiaca Plain and Rosindale neighborhoods of Boston, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted.  The arboretum which was founded in 1872 is the second largest link of the Emerald Necklace of Boston.  The living collection numbers almost 15,000 plants which include species from North America as well as Eastern Asia.  The arboretum is open everyday 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset.  Admission to the Arnold Arboretum is free and walking tours are available as well for visitors which include guided and unguided tours.  Also, the Arnold Arboretum houses it’s own extensive horticultural library and archives.  With such diverse seasons in New England the arboretum is a great place to watch the seasons change.  The vastness of this park is reason enough to revisit and explore.
