Arboretum has maintained its natural habitat. Growing up, we would visit Arboretum for school sports sessions and to play games with friends. As an adult, Arboretum is ideal for nature walks, picnics, meditation and prayer and fun. An ideal site to go with family and friends.

Really nice place to be especially on Sundays when the Drum Circle is there. Very nice paths and also nice to sit on a bench and watch what some of the people do there.

We went for the first ever Reggae in the Park festival. Sigh. The air is fresh and clean, cool temperatures; you might wanna carry a scarf or a sweater if you're planning to stay till evening. Great for picnics!

It's a nice nature area. Good for a walk with friends, as single or with kids. Make Nature for kids to a lesson in this Park. Show them the beautiness of the Arboretum with all the plants and trees.

Trees are labelled in this lovely arboretum, which showcases both native and planted species. Heavily used on weekend afternoons. The trail around the outer edge takes about 40 minutes.
