Tranquil surroundings, lovely landscaping, beauiful flowers, immaculate gardens and walking paths at the Arboretum. It was great to see that this area has maintained the excellence it had when we attended the university so many years ago! Loved our visit!!

Interesting, relaxing, and beautiful. Great for relaxing with friends, or studying in trees, or viewing the stars even.

We have visited on May 6, 2018 . It's kind of early , but still the garden is really nice. The problem is to find a washroom. Only two portlets for such a grate garden.

Worth the visit; in the heart of the city. It is a beautiful spot for a walk and right near the University of Guelph. Bring your camera.
