We were there for less than 10 minutes. Granted the place is free, but it’s hardly worth the drive. Most of the signs are so faded you can’t read the names of the trees. The trees are in need of heavy pruning/cleanup. Looks like the city or whoever owns this has simply run out of funds to maintain this property.... More

A nice and quiet nature walk/run. Price is free which is always a good thing. Nice flowers and plants. My only issue was that the Asian area was great but over-grown...I wish it would of been kept up more..def a peaceful place for mediation

As arboretums go, it is on the small side, but that is part of the attraction. You follow one main path through the whole park and it is just right for those who can't or prefer not to get into a long walk. Plenty of pretty trees and flowers. Also has a playground area. We enjoyed it.

This park must have started with great potential. It's still very nice but seems like there is little funding to maintain it. There is a nice walking path and 100's of trees labeled. Only problem is the labels are all faded topping over and many unreadable. I still enjoyed the walk through and was nice for a 45 minute break.

I work nearby and I love to visit the Arboretum whenever I can. It is a beautiful park with many places to sit and enjoy yourself (bring a yoga mat, or picnic lunch, something to draw with, etc.).

I went with my daughter to take a walk and we loved it! Beautiful view beautiful trees. It also has a place to have some lunch, you need to bring your own though, they just have the tables and overall a nice place to have a relax time! It also has a playground which my baby loved!! Definitely coming back... More

We walked around for a while. I did not realize there were so many different types of palm trees. My favorite area was the Japanese section. We had two ugly ducks following us for awhile. We found a bubbling brook. All in all it as a lovely little park. My only complaint is some of the signs were so old... More

Pulling up I thought I'd be in for a 10-15 stroll if I really took my time. I spent 2 hours and could have easily stayed longer. Getting a little off the path, I found some fake purple mushrooms that someone had "planted". The real trees are the attraction, but finding those was a highlight for me. There are several... More

Spectacular green oasis right in our own backyard where one can go to rest, relax and be in nature. The assorted birds, especially at sunset are spectacular. The winding pathways make you forget that you are still in the city.
