Overview

The Arboretum of Arco is a strip of the archducal park created in 1872 by Archduke Alberto of Habsburg, Emperor Francesco Giuseppe’s cousin, near the archducal villa, when Arco was the winter residence of the Imperial Austrian Court. The Arboreto, whose vegetation, originating from various continents has been thriving due to the mild climate of Arco, still holds some species planted by the Archduke, like the majestic holm-oaks and the great conifers, the Lawson cypress and the huge sequoia.

Beautiful small park with small turtle pond. Quiet place with many benches to rest and enjoy the tranquility. A little hidden on the way to mountain. Free entry. Worth to take a look.

Lovely quiet and shady garden/park. Plenty of seating and great pond area with fish and turtles which the kids enjoyed.

It is a small arboretum but a nice place to visit on your way to the Castle or back, if you need a break. You can relax, enjoy the natural shade and get away from the summer heat. There is no entrance fee.

This is effectively a small free park. There is not a lot here but it is worth a look if you have free time to kill. They have put a lot of effort into naming plants and trees.

The arboretum isn't so big, but it's very well maintained and is a great place to shelter from both heat and rain!! You also get a great view over the town. Some really cool tropical trees and great for kids to run around and hide

The arboretum today is what is left of a much larger park area that surrounded the villa of an Austrian Archduke in 1872. Some of the older trees are particularly interesting, especially a few conifers from North America (Calocedrus Decurrens, Chamaecyparis Lawsoniana, Sequoia Sempervirens) and...More

Good tip for visit in hot days. Possible to make a picnic in shadow with nice view to Arco a Riva di Garda.

Well labelled and interesting collection of trees and shrubs. Clearly work was in progress to improve the site, but even early in spring, it was well worth a visit.

small green corner close to the ME city walls, on the road to the castle ruins. very nice for a couple of hours of green rest, interesting for those who are looking for various types of trees from all over the world
