The Aurora Community Arboretum Inc. (ACA) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the creation and maintenance of an arboretum for Aurora and surrounding areas. It is managed by its members through a Board of Directors. Members, if they so choose, are active participants in the work in the Arboretum.
The Aurora Community Arboretum is the 100+ acres of Town of Aurora parkland between Wellington Street on the south and St John’s Sideroad on the north along the valley of the East Holland River.
The ACA works with Town of Aurora Parks and Recreation Services under their Adopt-a-Park program. Funding to build the Arboretum comes primarily from the Town of Aurora, but also from ACA through its fundraising activities and a currently limited number of grants.
ACA also works with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority, which has environmental responsibilities for the East Holland River and which contributes to the development of the Arboretum; for example, through annual Community plantings done in collaboration with the ACA Board.
