  • I wanted to give 3.5 stars but you can't give a 1/2 star and I wasn't willing to go a full 4 stars. I started coming here 18 years ago, and 18 years ago I would have given the Arboretum 5 stars. If yo...  more »

  • Annual luminary walk is a highlight of our year. Wonderful tradition that our son enjoyed while young and is still enchanting. The trains have been expanded, the gnome village was terrific and spread out so people are not bunched up to see it. Old OP model was neat. Did I mention we saw Elvis there?
  • We saw the Christmas lights. We loved walking around and looking at all the different displays. There had people playing instruments and singing. There even was Santa. You could also purchase hot drinks and cookies. It was a great evening
  • Beautiful place. Walking the many trails (mostly paved) in the spring and summer would be a nature lover's dream. We enjoyed our walk today, but nothing green is growing in December. Well worth a visit.
  • Really cool park, nice walking tails. Easy for parents, soft mulch. Birdwatch area was awesome, spend some time in nature. Dogs are only allowed on mulch trails as far as I know. Cool sculpture garden if you want to see some nice outdoor art.
  • Visiting the Arboretum was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It is maybe a little more manicured can I would usually go in for, but very beautiful with lots of beautiful Fall Foliage and berries.
