A very well done detour off the city streets where you disappear into a nicely put together nature trail and hideaway. A must see if you are visiting Davis or want to walk off some of the great food you just had in the downtown just adjacent to here.

I took a stroll through the Arboretum to waste some time after checking out of my hotel and picking up my dog from the Davis Small Animal hospital. It was very enjoyable and relaxing just strolling along the walk.

If you are in Davis, Ca near the university and want a place to picnic, then head on over to the Arboretum. It has grass and large trees and the ducks are friendly.

The Arboretum is a 3+ mile looping path thru various types of plants and trees around a pond. Great place for a run or stroll. The Redwood section is awesome!

What a great place to take a walk, run or just relax. It's safe and all you hear is the sound of the nature. You can see lots of nature and wild animais. I just felt in love with a duck family.

It's a lovely place for jogging, for a walk, or just to sit and relax. You may observe ducks in a small stream, squirrels and birds, enjoy flowers. It is a very calm and peaceful place.

I have walked around the arboretum a few times while in Davis, it is very beautiful! We always see ducks or turkeys and sometimes little rabbits roaming the fields.
