The Arboretum is a very special place. The trees, gardens and the memorials provide something beautiful to look at when you visit, but the Arboretum is much more than what can be seen. The Arboretum is a collection of stories, a celebration of lives which have mattered and a living tribute to lives lost. What is here is unique, and the tranquil, meaningful landscape supports those left behind. It helps with acceptance. It helps loved ones feel close. It helps to ensure those who have served our nation are never forgotten.
The Arboretum is free to enter, but not free to maintain. We need your kind donation to ensure we can help visitors who need us, people like Lucy.
