  • Been going here since I was a kid. Great for school field trips and prom/wedding pictures as well. Have a great nature/learning center for kids. Love going on the auto tour, and walking my dog around too. Such a little gem! They have a nice little gift shop. The also have fun things like a Halloween pet parade, and a food truck day. Good for photographers, if you like to take nature pictures.
  • Came here in a whim with the family and was pleasantly surprised. This place is amazing! This is a beautiful park with so much to explore along the trails. I only spent a couple hours here with my family but we were already discussing our next trip before we even left!
  • Dawes is a beautiful relaxing place to spend the day. 45 min doesn't quite do it for me. When I set out for the day, I'm looking to relax and leave my stress on the trails. Yes the Japanese garden is beautiful and relaxing, but don't let that keep you from heading up to the overlook above the canopy. This overlooks a beautiful pond and the words "Dawes Arboretum" spelled out across the field of many beautiful trees and shrubs. Then you can trek on over to the pond where you can cross a short bridge to a little island towards the middle of the pond. A great place to sit for a moment relax and take in everything mother nature has to offer. There are plenty of picnic tables, benches, and comfy little nooks to relax or read a book in the fresh air. This is great for your physical and mental health.... Enjoy!!
  • I love this place I have a different view with every trip. The leaves are different the trees are different. Depending on the time I go the sun is in a different viewing for my pictures. I just love taking my daughter for pictures.
  • No trash can in the park. Be prepared with your own bag. The park is a great place and clean.
