We visited here when deciding which tree varieties to plant on our property. It's also a great place to just relax, have a stroll or a picnic. In hot weather you can take off your shoes and plunk your feet into the cool water of...More

Of course, there are trees, it's an arboretum! And they have some of the greatest trees in Spokane. If you don't find it in the FA it probably won't grow in our area.

Beautifully kept arboretum, close to town, but peaceful. Many of the trees are named and older with a nice variety. Plenty of grass to stroll and a building with info.

I love this arboretum. It is close to the freeway. You hear traffic noise, but it is lovely nonetheless. I wondered if this would be a good visit, given that it is fall. But, with the warm November temperatures, the autumn leaves were spectacular Veterans'...More
