Leila Arboretum's office is currently closed to protect the health of our Members, Volunteers, Visitors and Staff.

Thank you for your patience as it may take a little longer to return messages and emails during this time.



While the office is closed, Leila Arboretum is the perfect place to "get out and spread out" during this time of social distancing.
  • Walk your dog.
  • Play a round of disc golf.
  • Fly a kite.
  • Photograph signs of spring.
  • Run the 1 mile loop.
  • Enjoy a picnic of carry-out food from your favorite restaurant.
  • Wander about the 8'-20' tree carvings in our Fantasy Forest.
  • Walk and meditate in our Peace Labyrinth Garden.
  • Play Pokemon Go.


Join us in our 85 Acre park (FREE Admission) and avoid feeling cooped-up by the quarantine. Make an effort to get outside each day.
