Visited in April, the Arboretum was blooming. The different sections of Magnolia varieties in full bloom were spectacular. The ground cover of ferns and Trillium was impressive. The paths are easy to walk and well marked. The visitor center people were very welcoming and full...More

This is a great place for an urban hike. Many trails snake through the park, and you can visit the Japanese or Rose Gardens while you're there.

Free sttraction within the state park. Not your typical arboretum with row upon row of trees, bushes and plants. Rather this is a forested area with walking trails. Many of the plants and trees are named. There are a number of trails, some short and...More

Thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the Arboretum. The trails are varied and well marked. The types of trees are also well marked and there are numerous explanatory placards. Great experience.
