Sometimes I dislike the fact no dogs are allowed, but that makes it more peaceful and I don't have to watch where I step (or lay down and roll in the grass!). A great place to see a variety of trees and enjoy lunch.

Nice park for nature lovers. LOTS of trees, well labeled. Great photo ops! We wandered around for a little over an hour. Really enjoyed this park.

My wife and I attended a concert in the Arboretum last year. The grounds were beautiful and a great back drop to listen to wonderful music from a string quartette with Zuill Bailey

The spring blooms are so beautiful, and the wonderful smells. Just such a lovely stroll. It can be romantic. It can be peaceful. It is mind clearing. Destressing. These are just a few ways to describe this place. Enjoy, it's in our backyard...

It is so nice to visit the arboretum. It is not only educational, but realizing and beautiful and full of wonder at the same time.

Wonderful place to walk and enjoy the trees, even though it is close to the highway. You can hear traffic but can't see it. Best in Fall or Spring. Bathrooms can be hard to fine sometimes of the year. No playground but lots of place to run around and enjoy the outdoors.

65 Acres of trees. Superb way to spend an afternoon. Would have been good to eat a picnic under one of the many shade trees. Instead we marveled at the beauty of this well maintained Arboretum as we walked around the park and wondered how many would survive in Sacramento!

This a beautiful, place to explore and meditate and be one with nature. The arboretum is in Spokane, WA on the west side of town in a very private space, although there are two highways on each side of it, but is a beautiful sight for a wedding or a special place for taking photographs for special occasions.
