The Coker Arboretum is a local botanical garden and arboretum in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It is located inside the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

The 5.3-acre Coker Arboretum was established in 1903 by the university?s first botany professor, Dr. William Chambers Coker. It was named after him, since the creation of the site is also mostly his work. He planted East Asian plant species on the site, some of the most noted are the Metasequoia and some conifers. There?s also a native vine arbor that measures 300 feet long on the site.

Rich with daffodils and daylilies, the Coker Arboretum is an excellent stop in case you?re in town. Free tours around the arboretum are also available every third Saturday of the month.
