The arboretum is small but it is a hidden gem. The main path (about a mile in length) takes you through the gardens. Even on a hot (over 95) it was an easy relaxing walk because there are some very tall trees which give you some shade if you need as well as it seemed a small but comforting natural breeze. Trees and plants are well marked as to what they are and they have a map to help guide you. If you have any questions feel free to ask the receptionist in the pavilion.
She answered questions and even stepped into the gardens to identify a plant that had no label.
You will find it both relaxing and educational and if you see a planting you would like to have in your yard, they will gladly give you the name and details about its' habits. They may even have one for sale as they offer some plants for sale and they are mostly locally grown.
Go ahead and enjoy the gardens and one of the FREE attractions still available. I would encourage thinking about giving a donation so it can remain as beautiful and clean as it currently is.
