  • The arboretum is a magnificent collection of specimen trees and plantings. No matter the season it is always spectacular. The view of the Connetquot River from the mansion is stunning.

  • I visited this arboretum for the first time about two weeks ago. I gave it a rating of five stars for the vast amount of parking (if you have the Empire State pass which costs only $65 parking is free!), fields to enjoy, and trees and plants to enjoy, and the sheer beauty of the location. There is also a cafe that is located in the home that the former occupants lived in. The home and landscape was developed by William Bayard Cutting who started the sugar beet industry along with his brother. More of this information can be found inside the home, called "Westbrook.". If you travel enough on the property you will encounter a pond with snapping turtles and other aquatic critters as well. There is also a small island that looks out into the bay and canal area. Plenty of wildlife can be seen here including birds, fish, and turtles. The experience is definitely worth a lot more than the $10 admission it costs without the Empire pass. I definitely recommend it!
  • Beautiful park with great landscaping and nice restaurant to eat.
  • A beautiful place to visit. All ages. Right on the water.

  • Great place to take the kids to go for a hike
