Bartlett Arboretum, Stamford

4.6
A wonderful getaway from the hustle and bustle of daily life, the Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens serves as a leading horticultural and educational resource for area residents and visitors of all ages.

This irreplaceable resource features the best of what Connecticut's native landscape has to offer: magnificent Champion trees, charming gardens, wildflower meadows, red maple wetlands and boardwalks, woodland walking trails, varied wildlife and native habitats.

The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens offers a wide variety of educational opportunities for people of all ages.

Our adult lectures are provided by highly regarded professionals in various botany and horticulture fields.

As a regional resource for science education and a nationally recognized Arboretum, the Bartlett is perfectly positioned to provide students with a unique experience of complete immersion into nature science. We currently offer several core programs to the youth of the community including school programs, after school programs, outreach programs and a summer camp. The Nature Explore Classroom, an outdoor classroom, answers the profound need for connecting young children with nature.

Another great educational tool, the Bartlett Arboretum’s Herbarium and Research Library is a collection of more than 6,000 sheets of preserved plants from around the world dating back to 1887.

Open during the summer months, University of Connecticut Master Gardeners, answer questions and assist the community in garden-related topics through their Plant Clinic (free).

  • Bartlett holds excellent concerts from 5 to 7 every Sunday during the summer. I went for a Motown concert which was excellent in all respects including the lawn dancing. During the week the Arboretum is free and open to the public. Very quite and contemplative. There is plenty of parking during the week though may be full during the concerts. A food truck is available during the concerts serving hot dogs, grilled cheese, hamburgers and fries. Highly recommended!
  • Great place in northern Stamford for getting in touch with nature. Beautifully maintained grounds with a wonderful herb garden and greenhouse. Terrific place to walk a dog, see a concert or have a family picnic.
