“this is great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

I enjoyed myself here. Agreat place to take a walk and get away from it all. the had a bird show. It was cool. Beautufl flowers and plants. It is not expensive. It is great place to go for a couple of hours and enjoy the peace and quite of nature. Takes about 10 minutes to get there from downtwon flagstaff. It is a must see.

“Lovely plantings, knowledgeable docents”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

For a great guide to mountain planting and an idyllic setting, the Arboretum is a lovely place on the west side of Flagstaff. Docents were helpful in answering questions. It hosts delightful live music concerts on summer evenings.

“for the garden and plant lovers”

Great to walk around in and enjoy gardens and plants outdoors. Very peaceful to walk around and enjoy the different plants and offer you suggestions. They also offer classes and other things.

“Nice setting but not really worth 7 bucks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

It is a pretty setting but you can just go to one of the parks and see just about as much as you do here

“Good flowering time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

The arboretum has splendid examples of the flora of the Colorado Plateau. The guide was very knowledgeable. Due to potential bad weather we stayed close to the visitors center. We saw the herb garden and I was impressed with all the types and uses of herbs. I think it was typical of the plant life that you would see while touring the area. Apparently.July and August are the best times to see this venue
