The Bickelhaupt Arboretum or "Arb" as it is affectionately known, is the single best spot to get out in nature in the city of Clinton. More than a park, it feels like a nature preserve right in the middle of town. The 14-some acres are laid out on hilly terrain with a small creek winding through it. Visitors can stroll... More

We found ourselves with a couple hours to spare and found a brochure at the visitor's center. We had a lovely relaxing walk through the trees at the Arboretum. The variety of conifers is outstanding.

If you are in the surrounding area and have some time stop by and check it out.... More

We attended a wedding here in June and were pretty impressed. The grounds were lovely. It was awfully warm, so we didn't walk around as much as we should have, but there's always next time.

This is a beautiful place to enjoy being outside. Our girls and I try to visit once a month just to see what's blooming. Once we met one of the groundhogs that live in the area. If you need a break from the hustle and bustle, the arboretum is the perfect spot!

If you have a day when you feel really stressed, take a walk in the arb. Nothing like it.

Bickelhaupt is a beautiful free arboretum, especially considering Clinton's size. Bickelhaupt features fourteen acres of well tended lawns, trees and gardens with a creek running through. We spent most of our time among the conifers and found the grounds well laid out and most trees, shrubs, and plants nicely identified. A visit to their website will give you a good... More
