Lots of trees to Look at, benches for sitting, meditation garden, and plenty green spaces to spread a blanket on. Relaxing place to get a little exercise. Small playplace on one end of the park.

On a hot day there are Plenty of shaded areas to walk and stay cool while enjoying seeing quite a variety of different grasses, ground covers, plants, and trees. This is well organized, presented and maintained.

We ventured to the arboreteum when we couldn't locate the Greenway nearby. We loved the Arboretum. Parking was convenient and flowers were gorgeous! There are multiple arbors, fountains and beautiful paths. Easily walkable and accessible for most.

My husband and I enjoyed walking for about an hour in the park past lovely bushes, plants, flowers, wind chimes, and a fountain. Pretty far to the side, I saw a playground, baseball field, and tennis courts. Mostly, it is a relaxing place to walk....More
