  • The Arboretum is a nice place to walk around or sit and read a book in front of a pond. There is a small suspension bridge. It is worth going to if you are in the area.  more »

  • Pretty and large arboretum with nice maps. In need of more care. A lot og poison ivy
  • Nice place to visit. 2 small parking lots. Sometimes you can park on road.
  • Peaceful, relaxing, informative and little duck were so cute.
  • Very well maintained trails for walking in a beautiful environment. Bridges, lakes, and wildlife are abundant throughout the park. Shade is plentiful which keeps the temps cooler even in the middle of the summer months. Good areas to picnic with your family, especially nice as a test stop during road trips, only 5 minutes off of I-81. Lots of water fountains in case you didn't pack a bottle of need a refill. If you are local to the area of a student at the University this should be a regular visit for you.
  • Great trails, a pond, labyrinth, etc and it's all free.
