When the roses are out, that part of the garden is beautiful. The extension service is there and it can be really nice to wander the Japanese, Children's, and veggie gardens...

Love the koi fish pond (kids love feeding them) and the Japanese tea house. Other features are a little girls dollhouse, snake habitat, zen garden, rose garden, evergreen forest walk, in addition to plants for sale.

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.
