“Incredible Place for the Kids to See Very Beautiful and Grand Trees!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Best when the weather is mild, we visited when it was really hot. Great place to enjoy mother nature. Some of the most impressive Trees I ever saw are able to be viewed as well a bunch of other wonderful plants, sculptures and fountains. There is a treehouse style viewing platform that is best visited after a dry spell, it was wet on the rope platform a couple days after a rain and everyone got their pants wet sitting down on it. Nice place though, I would like it as a backyard if I was a Billionaire.

“Nice respite outside the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

Went here with my family awhile back and intend to return. A lovely natural area with nice walking trails and plenty of plants and fresh air! Charming place to engage with nature and get away from it all.

We visited on Mother's Day and were delighted at the beautiful gardens and fun things for two 4 year-olds to enjoy as well. I'll be back!

“Beautful arboretum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

The arboretum is a beautiful park any time of the year. It is great to bring children as they have features for them as well as adults. The train layout during the holidays is worth a visit. .
