Ijevan Subtropical Arboretum[1] (also known as Ijevan Dendropark or Ijevan Botanical Gardens) is located at the southern end of Ijevan, across the river from the highway. The plant collection includes over 625 species and varieties[2].

The gardens were founded during Soviet times by Lyudvig Sayadyan[3], and are currently being run and maintained by his son, Mekhak Sayadyan[4]. He sells plants in order to help finance the gardens and it is a common spot for wedding photography for locals.
