About Mount Pisgah Arboretum

One of the shining jewels of Lane County, Mount Pisgah Arboretum is a 209-acre living tree museum. Its riverside trails, quiet paths through evergreen forests, water garden teeming with life, bright wildflower meadows, and open views across oak savannas delight all ages. Located within Lane County’s Howard Buford Recreation Area, the Arboretum lies between the Coast Fork of the Willamette River and the slopes of Mount Pisgah.

Important: Parking at Mount Pisgah

All parking at Mount Pisgah Arboretum requires a Lane County Parks pass. All families who enroll in summer nature camp at the Arboretum purchase an annual membership that includes an annual parking pass which you will receive on the first day of camp. For Home School programs you may drop off and pick up your children in the “bus turnaround” area without needing a pass. However, if you park your car for any amount of time in the parking lot you must purchase a pass. You can purchase a day pass on site for $4 or you can purchase an annual pass for $40. Lane County Parks has been known to be aggressive in ticketing cars and if you receive a ticket we will be unable to intervene on your behalf. Please be sure that all cars parked at the Arboretum display a valid pass.
