Hoyt Arboretum is a wonderful place for families to explore together and discover a world of trees and plants just 2 miles west of downtown Portland. Easily accessible by car, bus or light rail from anywhere in the Portland Metro area, Hoyt Arboretum offers parents a 185-acre "living classroom" in which to teach their children about trees, plants and the natural world.
Hoyt Arboretum is home to a collection of more than 8,000 trees representing over 1,000 species from around the world. A Visitor Center in the heart of the Arboretum offers visitor services, a research library, educational brochures, trail maps, a children's activity map and a small gift shop.
