Cox Arboretum beautiful 189-acre facility is a special place for visitors to escape among trees, shrubs, specialty gardens, mature forests, and prairies. The arboretum hosts year-round educational programs that teach children and adults about sustainable horticulture, plant science, and conservation. Cox Arboretum MetroPark is also home to a native-OhioButterfly House. Here are some of our Cox Arboretum photos which Maxim Photo Studio has captured as part of our wedding coverage and engagement sessions.
In the early 1970s, Cox Arboretum Foundation members Harry Price and Horace Huffman began to consider ways to assure the long term survival and continuing growth of the James M. Cox, Jr. Arboretum. The presence of Dick Lawwill (Park District Director) and Harry Price (Park District Commissioner) on the Cox Arboretum Foundation Board led to discussions concerning the Arboretum-Park District relationship.
