Large variety of plants and trees. Peaceful lush garden to relax with the family or alone with a book. Great opportunity for macro photography or family pictures. We really enjoyed this gem!

I would definitely recommend this arboretum to families and couples. I took my daughter and her 2 friend and they had such a blast. It was a fresh air adventure. I love the fresh air and the beautiful flowers and plants. It was very relaxing.

The vastness and beauty will cause you to stay longer than you planned. It is so convenient to get to, and the information available in the main building is very informative about the nature of the Washington area. The gift shop is well stocked, and...More

I don't think she should have too many problems in this park. It is quite flat and the trails were in good condition when my family and I were there last October.
