Beautiful Setting

Great atmosphere and superb learning environment for kids and adults. Great staff. The road out will likely be bumpy, depending on latest rains and maintenance.

Although we really didn't enjoy the arboretum grounds or exhibits, it made an incredible venue for an outdoor wedding! My niece got married - and had the reception all within 50 yards! And the setting was beautiful!! We must get back and enjoy the park!

My sister is an avid gardener, so I thought I would take her here. She grows many of the same plants in upstate NY, but we are nestled in the pines. We had a wonderful guided tour with Cheryl, who was very knowledgable and sweet. and told about the history of this serene place. The weather was perfect, and it... More

It was interesting to know about the history of the property and nice that it is open to the public to enjoy. We mostly enjoyed the Butterfly enclosure. The staff was enthusiastic and informative. We attended a concert after walking around the Arboretum. The Concert experience was wonderful. The weather was perfect.

Tucked back in the woods, the Arboretum is smaller scale and more quaint than those you would find in bigger cities/metro areas. Can see the San Francisco Peaks while walking the nature path.

The road is in paved the last 3 miles with several washboard sections. Arrived two hours prior to closing (5pm). Was told the Butterfly house closes at 4pm. Strolled over to the area, taking pictures of the natural setting. When thunder could be heard. Ladies came running over and locked the doors on the building. We never made it in.... More

This is a very nice, well organized arboretum. We packed a picnic lunch and ate in the picnic area. We enjoyed visiting the horticulture building where they have a water tube system to help heat and cool the room. Very interesting. We also visited the research hothouse and got caught in a thunderstorm. When the rain just wouldn't stop we... More

The Arboretum is a beautiful place to come relax and enjoy flowers, hummingbirds and butterflies as you meander the winding paths. It has an informative Nature Center and the staff were all great. Beautiful place to relax and unwind.

A few miles down a (good) dirt road brings you to the grounds. It has a nice "personality", not the OCD compulsively ordered sort of thing you find in some places. Instead, good bark mulch trains winding through relaxed garden beds with a laid back feel but a great inventory of local and not so local plants. A large, beautiful... More

We had a nice experience here, having heard of the place but not really knowing what to expect. The road to the arboretum was a well-graded gravel road which caused no issues. The central area is wooded and shady, with well-marked plants native to the Colorado Plateau. We were pleasantly surprised to find a butterfly house, and that was a... More
