Arie den Boer Arboretum is named for a renowned horticulturist who began collecting and planting flowering crab apple trees in Water Works Park in the early 1930s. Today the arboretum’s collection includes more than 1,500 trees representing approximately 300 varieties of crab apples, many of them collected by den Boer himself. This collection is one of the largest collections of flowering crab apple trees in the world. The trees blossom annually in late April or early May, attracting thousands of visitors to the park. Countless graduation pictures and family portraits are taken in the arboretum each spring and hundreds of local residents use the arboretum’s trees as a guide for selecting their own flowering crab.
