Hidden gem!

Beautiful gardens and grounds. Free to walk around and explore. Quiet and relaxing. Koi pond, Japanese tea house, fairy tale garden, and simply beautiful experience.

Small yet beautiful

The gift store was closed. Pretty much self guided look at pretty plants and decor in a small city park. About thirty minutes and done. Was quiet and peaceful

Absolutely lovely!

Wonderful place for a peaceful stroll. The herb garden is cool with many interesting varieties. The Japanese garden is beautiful and tranquil, and the rose garden has many gorgeous blooms this time of year. Plenty of fish to feed in the koi pond. Many seats and benches in both sunny and shady areas to relax and enjoy. It’s a popular spot for family photos.

Phenomenal!

We considered this more a botanical garden than an arboretum. The gardens, sculptures an entire area was well thought out and absolutely gorgeous. Parking lot with free parking. The Japanese Garden was perfect. Highly recommend.

A Beautiful Park - a place to visit to learn more about trees, bushes and flowers that are indigenous to the area.

This is a free park, arboretum. There are multiple exhibits to look at. Some of them have interesting descriptive signs. My grandson loved the coi pond. You can buy food and feed the fish.

Tranquil oasis

We were surprised by the quality of the gardens. Plants were well labeled and cared for. One main attraction was a large pond stocked with koi. Some were giants. There are various garden areas, all well tended

Wonderful free activity for the whole family

We were so surprised to find this free attraction on an afternoon when we needed to burn some time with the kids. The gardens were beautiful. The walk very relaxing. My 4 yo loved the story book trail and the japanese garden with koi pond. My father enjoyed the carnivorous plants and the sod grass. I loved the Rose garden and the edible herb garden.

Stunning
Jun 2020 • Family
We visited this beautiful place bc during a light rain, knowing few people would visit it. It is also outdoors so during this virus chaos we are trying to be in small crowds and outdoors. The garden features, the vegetable area and the stunning flowers are well worth a visit. Kudos to the staff that keep this place running and the generous donors who support them. There are parking places and picnic benches. During a normal time there is even a place for kids to play. I did see a little one there enjoying the nature even if he could not venture into the cutest little purple house. Everyone should visit. Be it a place for silent mediation or just a stroll thru the grounds, it is well worth your time.
