Nature with an International Flair at the Bermuda Arboretum
When you’re looking for a spot to relax in the shade, or just want to get away from the sun and sand for a while, take a stroll by the Bermuda Arboretum in Devonshire Parish. While not an organized garden, the Bermuda Arboretum has 22 acres of wildflower meadows and forests filled with cedar, cherry, and rubber trees as well as Chinese fan palms. The park’s natural plant habitat boasts an international flair with its trees. The forests were formed from saplings that came from Japan, Canada and New Guinea. Queen Elizabeth II also sent saplings from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, England. This peaceful park is perfect for birdwatchers who want to catch a glimpse of cardinals, bluebirds, and kiskadees. A gazebo and cedar bridge make charming additions to the area.
The park has plenty to keep the active traveler occupied. There are well-maintained walking and jogging trails with exercise stations along the way. Mountain bike and cross country race events are held on the grounds.
