Vancouver's Old Apple Tree was planted in 1826 on Fort Vancouver land and is thought to be the oldest apple tree in the Northwest. It is also considered the matriarch of Washington State's apple industry.
The annual Old Apple Tree Festival is held on the first Saturday in October from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Old Apple Tree Park, located on Columbia Way, just east of the I-5 Bridge. The Urban Forestry Commission gives away tree cuttings from the Old Apple Tree during this event for visitors to start their own legacy.
The Old Apple Tree Park intersects with the Discovery Historic Loop Trail.
There are no fees for this park.
5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
