What is going at the gardens?

The Longview Arboretum is in the final stages of Phase I construction. We ask that everyone respect the orange safety fencing circling the work zone as there is still heavy equipment working the site. Hours for daily admission are 9am-5pm, Wednesdays-Sunday during the months of November through March. During the months of April-October we'll offer extended hours to 7pm to enjoy the cooler evenings. Please check in at the Longview Arboretum's Visitor and Nature Center, 706 West Cotton Street, to begin your garden tour.
