We hope you will come visit us VIRTUALLY. You've got lots of options!

In response to the evolving situation brought on by COVID-19, we are working enable all of you and the 1000 elementary students we would welcome this year to enjoy VIRTUAL visits to this amazing landscape. We are continuing to post videos, photos, texts, and instagram "insta-walks" on our various social media platforms. We hope you will join us for "what's in bloom," a walk on some of our beautiful trails, and learn about a broad array of our horticultural highlights such as this tour of our dwarf conifer collection. We will be posting on our website at, our Facebook page, our Instagram page and on our twitter page.
Check us out frequently and learn more about this place and about horticulture and all kinds of cool stuff. Hope to see you there!

From Rt. I-95/128: Take exit 2B in Canton for Rt. 138 NORTH.  Proceed through set of lights.  About a half-mile or so later, just after passing the Trailside Museum on your right, bear right onto Canton Ave and then take an immediate left onto Brush Hill Rd.  You will cross over Rt. 138 – go another 100 yards or so and enter the property through the first opening in the stonewall on your left – you will see a long and straight dirt lane.

From Hyde Park: Take Truman Parkway West until its intersection at Neposet Valley Parkway. Take a left and at Paul’s Bridge and the fork, stay right. Stay right at the next fork just 500 feet up the road, continuing on Brush Hill Road. Follow Brush Hill Road past the sets of speed bumps to nearly the top of the hill and take the last right when you can see the traffic light ahead at Route 138/Blue Hill Ave – you will see a long straight lane with signs directing you to parking.

The Mary May Binney Wakefield Arboretum includes over 22 acres of formal gardens, orchards, woodlands and wetlands and is a beautiful place for a informal stroll or guided tour.

We are open for visits to the arboretum and gardens by appointment. Suggested donation is $5. To schedule a visit, call 617-333-0924 x22.

We hope to see you soon! If you'd like to print out our beautiful Pocket Guide, with a map and great information about the history of the property and it special features, click here. This guide was formatted to print on 8 1/2 x 11. For a full size guide, pick one up in the map kiosk.

 (The guide was created by Maggie Redfern, graduate of the Landscape Institute, as part of a report entitled, "Maryfield: A Preservation Plan for the Mary M. B. Wakefield Estate." The report was the final product of her 2011-12 independent studio of the Landscape Institute of the Boston Architectural College and can be read in its entirety at the Arnold Arboretum Library.)
