Nestled in busy suburbia, the Thielke Arboretum of Glen Rock offers a serene oasis for visitors wanting to escape. The Arboretum is a massive eleven-acre home to various species of plants and trees, many native to the area. The wetland forest also serves as a natural habitat for many native inhabitants, such as butterflies, birds, and amphibians.
Located at 460 Doremus Ave., Glen Rock, NJ, 07452, the Arboretum is perfect for finding some quiet time or learning more about the beauty and nature surrounding us. And for those motivated to do more, the park is open to donations and volunteers to help keep it preserved and maintained.
The Arboretum grounds offer a gazebo and pond area that members can rent for special events. Members can also rent the Thomas Vielbig and Thomas Scerbo Environmental Education Center. The Arboretum is popular for private events hosted for school-aged children.
The Arboretum hosts many public workshops and events year-round. The location is also very popular for picture-taking and professional photographers. Just be sure you obtain your photography permit before visiting and taking any photos. Membership is not required for visitors who wish to walk the trails. However, groups of 10 or more will require a Use Permit.
New Jersey has over 150 statewide memorials honoring those killed on September 11th, 2001. Near the Thielke Arboretum, in Veterans Park, is a paved walkway leading to one of these memorials. The memorial holds a piece of steel from the World Trade Center and is accompanied by a sculpture. There is also a bench engraved with the names of victims from the Glen Rock community lost on that day.
