Enjoyed this very much. A good break from people and to slow the pace. Especially enjoyable if you have interest or knowledge in horticulture.

This park was a little slice of heaven! Very tranquil, serene and peaceful! Loved all the trees from different States of USA and other countries. The memorial to Apollo 14 was especially moving.

This is a beautiful park with a wonderful walkway that meanders thru the trees. Each tree is marked by the state or country where it originated. A great place to let the kids romp around.
