“don't forget the picnic lunch”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

When you have time to lunch with friends, plan a picnic in the gardens of the arboretum. It won't matter what season it is, the gardens always inspire, and the staff will help educate you. It is good for parents with toddlers, young lovers, a quick office lunch hour break, or a stroll with the grandparents. See what ornamentals and vegetables will grow in our climate. The landscaping will give you ideas for your own lawn. This is a secret spot.

“Relaxing and free!”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

Vegetable gardens growing, a huge pond with Koi and sometimes baby frogs jumping all over. Trails to walk through and let your children run around and just enjoy.
