Wonderful place to walk and enjoy the trees, even though it is close to the highway. You can hear traffic but can't see it. Best in Fall or Spring. Bathrooms can be hard to fine sometimes of the year. No playground but lots of place to run around and enjoy the outdoors.

65 Acres of trees. Superb way to spend an afternoon. Would have been good to eat a picnic under one of the many shade trees. Instead we marveled at the beauty of this well maintained Arboretum as we walked around the park and wondered how many would survive in Sacramento!

This a beautiful, place to explore and meditate and be one with nature. The arboretum is in Spokane, WA on the west side of town in a very private space, although there are two highways on each side of it, but is a beautiful sight for a wedding or a special place for taking photographs for special occasions.

I like that they do not allow dogs and they label the trees. It is close to the freeway but the noise is not that bad. This is a huge park where you can enjoy getting lost and finding your way back safely. Lots of open space. Great place for a wedding.

This park with all the trees and the creek running through it is a great place to slow down and un wind. there are several trails and if you enjoy jogging this site is also used for several cross country running competitions. the trees and many plants are labeled, so if you are looking for landscape ideas it is good...

I went here once and will never return. I don't care to walk long distances just to read that a certain tree is a "latin, latin, whatever". Very boring.

The Arboretum has a wide variety of trees. I have visited in Autumn several times, and more recently in the Spring. It is beautiful. The trail at the far Western side of the park is definitely worth finding and walking.

Great place to stop and see the flowers. trees and and spend a quiet moment. Clean, well-kept, and ridiculously easy to get to. Our family spent many lunch picnics there and it's still nice!
