Safety Updates :
As we navigate COVID-19, we want to make sure that all our patrons are safe while enjoying the grounds.
The Arboretum grounds, Manor House, as well as the Hidden Oak Cafe are open during our regular hours for you to enjoy.
Please follow all posted rules. We will continue to update as we receive more information. Thank you.
Bayard Cutting Arboretum was donated to the Long Island State Park Region by Mrs. William Bayard Cutting and her daughter, Mrs. Olivia James, in memory of her husband, William Bayard Cutting. The intent of the donation was “to provide an oasis of beauty and quiet for the pleasure, rest and refreshment of those who delight in outdoor beauty; and to bring about a greater appreciation and understanding of the value and importance of informal planting.”
We are an arboretum, think of us as a “museum of trees”, not a park. Activities such as biking, picnicking, sports, pets of any type, and games are not permitted.
