The Skyrman Central Point Arboretum

Not Currently Open To The Public - Under Construction


Wally Skyrman donated his property on N. Pacific Hwy, just north of the Oregon State Police, to the City and designated it to be used as an Arboretum. The City has made progress with clearing the property and is now in the design process to proceed with construction so that it can be opened for the public.


The Arboretum has a variety of vegetation and trees native to Oregon, along with a few that are not. There will be trails as well as a building used for a learning center.


We encourage the public to attend our public meetings to help us with the process of creating this wonderful new addition to our Parks!
