  • Awesome getaway from the fast life. Great peaceful places to sit and relax. Ponds, flowers, benches, and gazebos abound. We love the walking/hiking trails! One of our favorite places to go with the family
  • Perfect place for a evening dog stroll Hadnt been in years but it seems to have improved. It is too bad that it is sandwiched between two major arteries of traffic, maybe some sound walls would help deflect the noise. Nice green spot to get away fro the hustle and bustle anyway. Cant wait till they get the tree house up and running. Perfect spot for a picnic.
  • Cox Arboretum is awesome! I seen many turtles and other wildlife, including a box turtle on the side of a trail. I would never remove a creature from its natural habitat, but I must admit that it was tempting. Turtles are my favorite! I wish they offered external restrooms though. Had to go towards the end of my visit, but wasn't allowed to visit any buildings after 5. Online map shown 2 restrooms, so I had indulged an extra cup of coffee before my visit.
  • Very nice nature encounters. I just wish there were more butterfly types to visit in the butterfly garden. It is beautiful.
  • I've been going here since my childhood, it's one of my favorite places in town! Enjoy all the trails back in the woods, as well as all of the coy fishes, butterflies & a tower that lets you see as far as the eye can go over the whole city! 😄
