It was created in 1872 by the Archduke Albert of Hapsburg, near the archduke villa.
The Arboretum, whose original vegetation from various continents expanded thanks to the mild climate of Arco, still preserves some species planted by the Archduke, such as the majestic holm oaks and large specimens of conifers, including the Lawson cypress and the huge sequoia.
From 1993 the Arboretum became a detached section of the Tridentine Museum of Natural Sciences of Trento.
This beautiful park is open all the year-round and is equipped with information boards in three languages.
