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!

Beautiful park full of amazing trees! Saw the sign that said no dogs on our way out... with our dogs. So a little something to remember for future trips!

It's a nice place to walk with an interesting path; of course, I'm biased because we live in the park area. Most school kids, past and present, have visited on a school trip; try not to visit during a cross country meet or special park event as parking is not good at those times.

Great place in Spokane to get some peace and quiet. I like to run around the park a couple of times. Nice for a walk.

It's cool to have such a designed yet natural setting just minutes from downtown. A little tricky to find, but worth the effort. It's sandwiched between freeway & major artery, but those don't spoil the experience. After all, this is an urban area. Beautiful botanical destination, even in winter, when I visited.

I have visited here during most seasons and truly enjoy it. Fall is my favorite by far though. It is a nice walk, with beautiful trees. The trees are well marked for those interested. It is also a great place for photographs and just taking a leisurely walk.

We visited the Arboretum as part of the Spokane City Drive and were glad we did. Lots of trails, lots of trees and smaller plants and some wildlife. Even with the highway close by we found it a tranquil place.

When I moved to Spokane in 1988, this was one of my favorite places in the whole County. Sadly, this is nolonger the case.... This property has significant drainage issues. This is particularly apparent in Spring when the ground is saturated with ground water. This causes significant problems for anyone who has difficulty walking. The place should also be totally...
