About the Holden Arboretum

The Holden Arboretum incorporates nearly 3,500 acres in Lake and Geauga counties, with 200 acres dedicated to cultivated gardens and special collections. Our gardens showcase a wide range of plants from delicate spring ephemerals to grand displays of brightly colored rhododendrons, and each garden has its own story to tell. The arboretum also has miles and miles of trails for beginner and more advanced hikers.
