Lilac Sunday at the Arnold Arboretum
The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University is the oldest public arboretum in North America and one of the world’s leading centers for the study of plants. Of the thousands of flowering plants in the Arboretum, only one — the lilac — is singled out each year for a daylong celebration. Come to Lilac Sunday for tours of the lilacs, dance performances, picnicking (allowed on this special day only), and family activities that make for a memorable day. Be a part of this beloved Boston tradition! Street parking along the Arboretum perimeter is limited, and visitors are advised to take public transportation.
