What a wonderful place to hike and enjoy scenery! The staff is friendly and the plants and flowers are amazing. There are three different walking paths and there is a pond. For young kids, there is a fairy village that is delightful!

Lots of beautiful acres to walk. Water, benches, interesting planting like trees that had been on a space shuttle. Short walk, long walk. BUT lots of grasses and rustic paths. I would do a tick check after. BUT you always should do that after a walk.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a place to snowshoe around Augusta. This is a great place, there are many trails or you can build your own!!! We started in an open field and went through a beautiful forest. It was really nice. I am looking forward to come here, especially in the summer.

I came in the winter for dog sled rides. What fun! And a beautiful area. I could just imagine what it might look like in spring, summer and fall. Ideal for hiking, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Lots of sculptures dispersed throughout, also.

I visited the arboretum with friends on a beautiful September morning. We were lucky enough to visit on a day when a group of sculptors were creating in the field. Several of them were nice enough to stop their work and answer our questions. After visiting with the sculptors, we hiked the outer trail of the park. The women in... More

Easy walk around trees, plants, water, bridge and sculptures. Quite a variety of settings in the park. A little buggy once you get into the woods. Info station was not open on Sunday. Great place to take kids.

If you love nature walks, this is the place to visit. There are a number of trails to hike on and it is all free. Wear shoes that do not get your socks wet if you find a wet spot along the trail. There was not a big problem with bugs, but you might consider using an insect repellant.

Made the outerloop walk off 1,6 mile which was very nice. We were there on a Sunday so the visitor center was closed and there were not a lot of people present. You walk on mostly grass and a part through the forrest.
