Great little park for the kids, picnic tables and a bridge over a lake. A lovely waterfall with a button you can press to make it go super fast. Very nice and worth a visit when in Armidale.

A beautiful place to visit in Autumn when the leaves are turning red and gold. It has the best feature - click a button and a waterfall starts. It’s fantastic.

The arboretum is home to a man made waterfall. This waterfall is available by pushing a button and waiting 5 minutes. There is a park for kids, bbq area and walking trails. Very beautiful and relaxing location.
