How was the current arboretum formed? 
The forests of the arboretum in Budafapuszta belonged to the Zichy family long time ago. The hunting castle there was built in 1926; a small park and a pond were made around it then.
After the nationalization of the manor in 1954 the arboretum was built on the one hand for public welfare purposes, on the other hand to help acclimatize tree species from unknown areas and distant continents. A new area was built connecting to the old castle park, and the existing pond was renewed as well. 132 types of pine-needled and 88 types of leafy trees were planted in the park. The arboretum becomes a real fairy garden in spring when azaleas bloom; silver fir, mammoth tree and marsh pine stocks give you a special spectacle all year long.

What else can you see there? 
Zalaerdő PLtd has had the hunting house renovated, a new lookout tower and a playground built; furthermore, open-air fire places, sculptures and memorials were built as well in the arboretum in the past years.

How can you get there? 
The arboretum is situated about three kilometres from Kistolmács, Kiscsehi and Bázakerettye. You can get there from Bázakerettye and from the Kiscsehi parting on an asphalted road, from the direction of Kistolmács on the blue-cross tourist route.

Come to the Acorn Adventure Playground! 
Each element of our playground was made of natural materials, with unique xylography: Acorn-tower play castle, adventure jungle gym system and balancing track system; spring-Capricorn beetle, acorn slide-tower and climbing wall, acorn rope-tower, spider-net-pipe and a swaying swing bed welcome you. Do you want any more?
