We visit the Arboretum often in the summer and fall. In the summer, we like to visit in the hour or two before sunset, as the day is cooling off. Walking along the paths, in the shade of the trees is very relaxing. The kids enjoy running along the path and back and forth over the bridges. There is a giant hill that is perfect for rolling down, or so says our two little ones!
In the fall, we go to see the changing leaves. Many of the trees are labelled with their names, so it is fun to try to guess and then verify if we are close. (Rarely -- but getting better!)
Bring your camera, and in the summer think about a picnic lunch. It's a great quiet spot in the middle of the city.
