The OPPD Arboretum is a great place to enjoy the colors of summer among the facility’s 1,000 trees and shrubs. Take a late summer stroll along the two miles of walking trails and learn how properly planting trees can greatly increase your property’s energy efficiency. You’ll see some beautiful plants along the way, too.

The 26-acre arboretum is located at 108th and Blondo streets, is free and open from dawn to dusk. If you snap a beautiful photo, feel free to share it on the Storm & Outage Center or on OPPD’s Facebook page.
