Lovely place to stroll

Beautifully kept arboretum, close to town, but peaceful. Many of the trees are named and older with a nice variety. Plenty of grass to stroll and a building with info.

I love this arboretum. It is close to the freeway. You hear traffic noise, but it is lovely nonetheless. I wondered if this would be a good visit, given that it is fall. But, with the warm November temperatures, the autumn leaves were spectacular Veterans' Day weekend.

This place is very pretty . A lot of walking, not much parking. Good place for a picnic and family photos! Wide open spaces great for kids to run (no play equipment)

Sometimes I dislike the fact no dogs are allowed, but that makes it more peaceful and I don't have to watch where I step (or lay down and roll in the grass!). A great place to see a variety of trees and enjoy lunch.

Nice park for nature lovers. LOTS of trees, well labeled. Great photo ops! We wandered around for a little over an hour. Really enjoyed this park.

My wife and I attended a concert in the Arboretum last year. The grounds were beautiful and a great back drop to listen to wonderful music from a string quartette with Zuill Bailey

The spring blooms are so beautiful, and the wonderful smells. Just such a lovely stroll. It can be romantic. It can be peaceful. It is mind clearing. Destressing. These are just a few ways to describe this place. Enjoy, it's in our backyard...

It is so nice to visit the arboretum. It is not only educational, but realizing and beautiful and full of wonder at the same time.
