Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier (LEAF)

  • Plant

The Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier (LEAF) is a tree museum located within Frontier Park, a city park in Erie, PA.  LEAF is home to over 800 trees, a collection that grows in interest and diversity each year.  Many of the trees in the arboretum have been sponsored and will display a plaque bearing the Latin and common name of the tree.

LEAF is responsible for many of the improvements to Frontier Park ranging from bridges and pathways to increased accessibility. The LEAF Education Center, which is available for rent, provides restroom facilities, serves as an indoor classroom, and features a vegetative roof that reduces and cleanses storm water runoff.

LEAF is free to all visitors and we invite you to explore the arboretum’s beauty during each season. Stroll along our pathways, sit at our “virtual tree” gazebo, walk amid shade, flowering and evergreen trees, and enjoy the beauty that is Cascade Creek.

You can learn more about LEAF, its programs and events, and membership options by visiting our website, and by following Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier Park on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
