  • Great paths through this nature area. No cost to enter, a wonderful calm small pound near the back was my personal favorite area. All through the park, birds and small animals could be seen on the sides of the paths. Most of the plants had small tags that told the name of the plant. A small store out front also sold small potted plants. (On a side note there were a TON of Pokemon Go Poke-stops and Gyms)
  • Nice trail surfaces, upgraded since my last visit. Very enjoyable walk. Trees numbered for identification. Birds, chipmunks, the boys liked it too...
  • You're in for a lovely walk no matter the season. Jenkins Arboretum is a local jewel with free admission. Many of the plants are labeled, unfortunately not enough of them, although​ a photocopied guide can be had in the gift shop. The highlight of meandering down the winding, looping path is the pond. Wear comfortable shoes, grab your camera. No smoking, dogs, and stay on the trail.
  • So beautiful, especially during spring! There is a pond at the bottom. The path to the bottom is quite steep, but this contributes to the beauty
  • Jenkins arboretum was a wonderful discovery to this long term but previously oblivious main line resident....beautiful views and the best moss display I have ever seen!
