“Great place to see various plants and trees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Was there with Boy Scout Troop from Church and it is a lot of fun to learn about where all the trees/plants are from. It is a beautiful place.

“Beautiful!”

The best recommendation I can make is to go here and go often. The arboretum changes through out the year. It's a great place to relax and enjoy the great outdoors.

“Arboretum....need to go there.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Great place to go in winter or summer. Kids enjoy it, activities for them and adults. Check their schedule, as sometimes they will have concerts.
