Peavy Arboretum is an arboretum operated by Oregon State University and located on Arboretum Road, Corvallis, Oregon. It is open to the public daily without charge.
The arboretum was dedicated by the university in 1926, operated as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp from 1933–1942, and reverted to College of Forestry management in 1964. While the CCC was active, they planted trees, expanded the nursery, constructed Cronemiller Lake, and built roads, trails, and firebreaks.

  • With miles of unpaved trails in the wooded hills north of Corvallis, this park is a great place for a run or hike. Take care to keep dogs on the trails as there is a potential to disturb the ground bees. Overall it is a great place to have a walk in the shade on a hot day, or really throughout the year.
  • Very pretty place to walk around. I enjoyed reading all the informative signs. I took some beautiful photos the very tall and beautiful trees. It was very peaceful. There was a lot more to explore up the road. I’ll definitely be back.
