Constitution Park & Arboretum includes a community center with a game room and recreation room with an adjoining full kitchen. This park features a playground, two tennis courts, and an outdoor basketball court. The Arboretum, our "Tree Zoo," is approximately nine acres of land containing over 200 exotic trees from five continents around the world. These trees are displayed along a half-mile walking path, fully accessible by wheelchair. The types of trees included in the tree zoo are Flowering Tropical Fruit, Exotics, Palms, Wetlands, Bamboo, Natives, and the Butterfly Garden.

A $75.00 security deposit fee will be added to the total cost of your pavilion rental. The deposit fee will be refunded if the facility is left clean, returned to its original condition, and vacated by the designated time on the permit. The facility must be booked at least 2 weeks prior to the rental date and no more than 90 days in advance.
Checks will only be accepted for payment 5 weeks prior to the rental date. Other forms of payment include credit cards, cash, and money orders.
Alcoholic beverages and/or gambling in any form are not allowed on City property.
The survival of the Arboretum and Nursery depends largely upon the volunteers and members in every area of operation. As a volunteer, you gain personal satisfaction from accomplishing challenging and rewarding tasks that are as varied as the plants on the ground. A T-shirt is provided as a thank you.
