  • A gorgeous, huge environment to explore - but be prepared! At 1700 acres, this place was far larger than I ever expected, so I wasn't able to see nearly all of it. Well worth it if you've got a day to spend outdoors. Will be back better prepared.
  • Well laid-out. Cool exhibits. I liked the maze garden. Lots of nice trails to hike on. Overall a nice place to spend the day with lots to see.
  • The wonderfully thought out exhibits, origami, this tear. The wonderful paths; walking or biking, among the great scenery and at the same time learning about all the wonderful species of trees, etc...Great family fun. Highly recommended.
  • be sure to bring comfortable shoes even if you're just taking your kids to the children's garden. amazing time for our kids (8 & 6) for the past 3 years. we always take a drive around the grounds to catch the beautiful grounds. never tried the acorn tram but it seems pricey and too long for young kids.
  • Can't begin to describe how beautiful this place is! The arboretum is a gem! They have wonderful activities year round and with great learning opportunities. It's a lovely place to viait!
