Kuhnert Arboretum

Kuhnert Landscape Arboretum


In 2014, Confluence was hired by the Aberdeen Park and Recreation Board to develop a long-range master plan for the Kuhnert Arboretum on the south side of Aberdeen. The intent of this newly completed master plan is to guide future development of this site in the next several years.

The Arboretum Plan contains arboretum settings with shade trees, ornamental trees, coniferous trees and shrubs, deciduous shrubs, and other plantings. The plan includes an outdoor interpretive center, Children's Area, walking trails, Rose Garden, irrigation system, and interpretative signage throughout the arboretum.
