Great place to walk around nature. They have multiple marked paths, and the further you go on the longer paths the more 'natural' it gets. There's also several places to sit throughout. Great visit overall!

I visit here often. It's a beautiful place to be at one with nature. If you're into geocaching or scavenger hunting, there's an ammo can cache hidden in the arboretum. Good hunting ;)

I stopped by there to enjoy the wonderful fall weather and scenery. The gardens were still pretty, even in September. I enjoyed sitting @ the gazebo enjoying the breeze and taking in the natural setting around me. Very relaxing. I sure needed that.

You could easily miss the South Arkansas Arboretum, but I hope you don't. Wandering around, taking it all in, always helps.

The Arboretum is one of the most beautiful sites to visit in El Dorado. Mother Nature abounds here. The Union County Master Gardners keep this site ship shape!
