The arboretum is well maintained. Parking lot is right at the entry to the arboretum. We were there in early evening and small gnats swarmed around our heads - - we didn't get very far into the arboretum and had to leave.

Enjoyed finding the names of trees and plants that I would like to have in my own garden/yard. It was a beautiful summer morning with no other people around.

I have been to a couple other arboretums in Iowa so that kind of spoiled this for me, as they are a lot nicer. However, this one was free and I had to pay for the others. I think if they did have people pay...More

The Arb is my favorite place in the whole city! I love to walk through the beautiful grounds that feature over 2,000 trees, shrubs and conifers of all sizes. Birds of all kinds call this 14-acre gem home. Stop by anytime from dawn until dusk...More
