The Westmoor Arboretum is an ArbNet accredited Level I Arboretum (2023) located on the grounds of the 162 acre Westmoor Park in West Hartford, CT.
Westmoor Park was established and chartered as an educational and environmental center by a generous grant from Charles and Leila Hunter in 1973. The Hunters bought the land (farmed since the late 1600s) at foreclosure in 1939, and bequeathed it on their passing to the town of West Hartford.
Since the time of the Hunters, the study, planting, and conservation of trees has been an essential part of Westmoor's environmental mission. The oldest trees in the Arboretum date back to the late 1800s, and it currently features 63 different species.
Guided tours are given in all 4 seasons.
Self-Guided Tours are open to the public during Park Hours: Daily, Dawn to Dusk.
Detailed information on each species of tree (all 4 seasons) is included and may be accessed by the LIST.
