Planting Fields Arboretum


Planting Fields Arboretum State Historic Park is an arboretum and state park covering over 400 acres, located at 1395 Planting Fields Rd. in the Village of Upper Brookville in the town of Oyster Bay, New York 11771.

This year’s Annual Camellia House Weekend was last Saturday, February 21st and Sunday, February 22nd 11:00am – 4:00pm. It featured live music, walking tours of the Camellia House and activities for children. Coe Hall was open for self-guided visits. All activities inside the Camellia House were free.

The gorgeous camellias offer a respite from the harsh snowy winter, promising that spring is on the way. In a word, incredible!

Mark it on your calendar for next year -rain or shine. Check their website  for events throughout the year.
