5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Very nice set of gardens a couple of blocks from the downtown square. I liked that the plants and trees were well-labeled.

“Beautiful grounds and trail near Crystal Bridges museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Nicely landscaped trail system near the Crystal Bridges museum and Bentonville Square. Several varieties of plants and trees are identified and a nice stream flows through the gardens. Live music is sometimes featured along with weekend plant sales.

Very educational as plants and trees are labeled. Pleasant walk as short or long as you want. Arrived too late to visit the center
