    COMMUNITY ARBORETUMProvides a 40-acre portion of the campus that is designated as an arboretum which features more than 125 trees (some very rare). Each tree is labeled with interesting horticultural facts and origin information. The trees are located along a self-guided walking trail that encircles the campus' main academic buildings. One of the landmarks along the trail is the breathtaking Tudor mansion that was once the home of cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. The arboretum is open to the public seven days a week from dawn to dusk, free of charge. The self-guided walking trail starts and ends at Hillwood Commons and lasts anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes. Because the arboretum is a cherished part of the C.W. Post Campus, restrictions are few. We ask that you take care not to damage any plants or trees, and no pets please. We'd like our arboretum to serve as a resource for generations to come. Group tours, led by a trained horticulturist, are available by appointment. The trail is wheelchair accessible.NassauCOMMUNITY ARBORETUMLIU POST
