“A gem in the city”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We spent about an hour walking the main path through the botanical garden. We enjoyed it because there were so many varieties of each tree and bush, and all were well-marked. The layout is according to geographic region (Europe, Asia, etc), which makes it even better and more interesting.

“Very Good Hike”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Every university needs an arboretum to let students appreciate nature and be able to exercise on trails outdoors and this arboretum does exactly that. This arboretum is of great size too, although I would love to see it expand in size to incorporate more plants and trails.

This arboretum is well maintained and has stunning views from the high ground. Trees, flowers and shrubs are all well marked with their proper and common names. Beautiful place in summer and fall.
