San Mateo Arboretum

The San Mateo Arboretum is an arboretum in San Mateo, California containing old stands of pine, oak, cedar, and redwood planted over 100 years ago on the William Kohl property. The Arboretum is located in San Mateo's Central Park, which also has a Japanese garden designed by Nagao Sakurai that was dedicated in 1966. The garden marks the sister-city relationship between San Mateo and Toyonaka, Japan.
