We enjoying walking along the path looking at the various types of palm trees. Some had signage to tell you what they were. I'm thinking that others the signs had been removed. Regardless it was fun to see the different kinds. Plenty of free parking...More

A very pleasant walk! Some of the signs labeling the trees were missing or difficult to read. Otherwise seemed well-maintained.

hundreds if not thousands of Palm trees from all over the world. Most are labeled. Great place to duck into when you are working out or just taking a walk.

This Arboretum is filled with palm tree varieties from around the world. It is nothing short of amazing to view. If you're vacationing in the area, make sure you visit. It's free and next to large parking lot for easy access.

If you like plants particularly palm trees you'll enjoy walking through this. It's pretty small and attached to the wonderful North shore park.

The garden is pretty to walk thought and take pictures in but when we were there homeless people were sleeping on the benches and it made walking around with small children very uncomfortable!

Meandering paths through a plethora of Palm trees. Some of the signs need to be replaced. A lovely place to spend some time.
