  • An arboretum like this should be in every town. Gardens are open from dawn to dusk and other buildings/offices are open from 10-5. This is a beautiful and well-cared series of gardens.  more »

  • Free family fun, outside in a beautiful garden! We love having a picnic here or eating at the tables, love walking around with the children and letting them play in the little play area, feeding the koi fish is fun... Remember to bring quarters for the food dispenser! We stay for about 2 hrs each time.
  • Always a nice place to visit. Clean, well-kept, and once spring hits, there is always something new blooming. One of my fav spots is the rose garden but you have to wait until at least late April to really enjoy that.
  • The Arboretum is absolutely wonderful, not to mention it is free It is beautiful anytime at the year. It is a nice place to come and walk around, or relax. Come bring the children, they have a wonderful little Playhouse, and koi fish to feed.
  • Nice place to visit. The trees and flowers are amazing. If you like gardens you will love this place. Everything is labeled which is great if your planning a garden and need ideas. It is a good half day place to visit. One can walk slowly and easily see all it's scenery.
  • Such a great place! It's small, for sure, but in season the plantings are beautiful and the coy pond is impressive. Best of all it's free (donations encouraged) so you can swing by whenever you want to have a picnic, read a book, or just enjoy the scenery.
