University of Rochester Arboretum

Local nameUniversity of Rochester Arboretum
LocationRochester, United States

The University of Rochester Arboretum is an arboretum located across the River Campus of the University of Rochester, 612 Wilson Boulevard, Rochester, New York.

The River Campus is located beside the Genesee River on a site previously owned by the Oak Hill Country Club. Famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Sr. had designed a "River Walk" of oak trees along the river; and after the university purchased the site in 1923, his son Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. served as landscape designer and consultant to the campus architects. In 1999 certain areas of the campus were designated as the arboretum.

The River Walk was recently sold to the City of Rochester as public parkland along the river corridor. In a 1 km area between Elmwood Avenue and Intercampus Drive are 197 oak trees representing 15 species.
