Betty Swan Community Arboretum

3840 W. Arthington St


Formerly the Arthington Senior Garden, the Betty Swan Community Arboretum fills five contiguous vacant lots with an array of shrubs, perennials and trees. This garden is a tree park to be used as a "living laboratory" and teaching tool for area school science projects. The arboretum is at the heart of a residential street lined with 19th century Greystone two-flat buildings, common to West Side neighborhoods. It is managed by the North Lawndale Greening Committee and protected by NeighborSpace.
