Directions

The maple collection is bounded on the east by Willow Path and on the west by Meadow Road. It is south of the Meadow and north of the Bradley Rosaceous Collection. The collection is about a five minute walk from the Forest Hills Gate, and a twelve minute walk from either the Arborway Gate or the Centre Street Gate. If driving, park along the Arborway.

Accessibility

The maples are growing in a flat grassy area. The area, as well as Willow Path, is not wheelchair accessible. There are good views into the collection from Meadow Road, which is paved and fully accessible.
