Willowwood Arboretum is peaceful. Not very crowded. Flowers, butterflies, bumblebees, and birds. Trails for walking. There are also hiking trails connecting to Bamboo Brook Park.

Willowwood must have been glorious during its brothers' heyday. Staff here is minimal and much has been grown over and not well marked. It still has a homey feel to it but definitely needs a boost to compete with other arboretums in county.

We had our wedding photos done here. A permit is required but it is worth every penny! Our pictures are breathtaking. Willowwood is a beautiful arboretum, very big and a nice place to spend the day.

We always include Willowwood in any trip to the area. Lovely small gardens attracting butterflies, hummingbirds and song birds. No admission charged, lovely clean facilities. If you are a hiker, there are trails but for those with limited hiking abilities, there is plenty to see...More

A great place to get lost with nature, the trails are easy and well marked you will not get lost but you can let your mind wonder while you spot countless unique species of native and non-native plants/tress.
