Important Information

  • It is against Arboretum policy to host organized walks and runs due to the narrow width of our walking trail and the potential damage to our plant collections. We suggest you contact Coldstream Park, Masterson Station Park, Keeneland or the Kentucky Horse Park for your event needs.
  • A permit is necessary for all commercial landscape and portrait photography, including wedding, family, engagement, graduation, prom, senior photos, etc.
