Chesapeake Arboretum


The Arboretum consists of 2 acres of gardens, the Caleb Williamson Farmhouse, and 48 acres of woodlands with 3.5 miles of mulched trails. Pick up a trail map from the box along the path near the farmhouse to begin exploring the grounds. Highlights of the trail include crossing a small clear stream that flows through the forest, which attracts reptiles, amphibians, and butterflies and provides a bathing spot for the woodland passerines that frequent the property.

One of Virginia's finest trail systems meanders through a mature hardwood forest with many varieties of native plants and trees. Part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail South Chesapeake Loop, this site is not to be missed. Click here for the Arboretum Trail Map.
