About Cox Arboretum MetroPark
Founded on December 2, 1962, the James M. Cox, Jr. Arboretum Foundation was formed when the Cox Family donated their property to create an arboretum. For many years, the property was cared for by dedicated volunteers, who also governed the Foundation. In 1972, they gifted the land to Five Rivers MetroParks and began a unique and successful public (MetroParks) and private (James M. Cox, Jr. Arboretum Foundation) partnership.

Cox Arboretum contains significant natural areas including two high-quality mature woodlots, dense cedar glades, especially beautiful succession areas (containing an abundance of dogwood and redbud trees), planted tall-grass prairie, and created wetlands.
