Texas Arboretum

The 16-acre Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum is a classic arboretum featuring a diversity of Texas trees. A 1.07-mile looping path meanders through meadows of native grasses and wildflowers and connects visitors with groupings of trees. Major features include a collection of Texas oak species (Texas has the greatest diversity of oaks in the U.S.), the Hall of Texas Heroes (a collection of live oaks descended from famous oak trees across Texas) and the swings in the Cathedral Oaks. Opened in 2011, the arboretum is a "lifetime project" that serves as a resource for tree identification, field trips, outdoor classes and tree-related events.
