We visited during moms weekend and had a wonderfully relaxing walk through the Arboretum while we were there. Allison at the Marriott in town recommended this for us and we are so happy we did.

The community loves the Arboretum, and it is a nice place for a walk. I would rate it more highly if it were truly a botanical arboretum with unusual specimens, or a stunning visual display well cared for. The University has minimal staff who do...More

Over the years we have been here several times love this place. In the summer they hold concerts in the middle of the park and it is quite wonderful

I adore the arboretum. It's a great place to take a walk and clear your head, and there are plenty of benches and secluded spots where you can contemplate or read. I love how the arboretum is sectioned based on regions of the world, and...More

Spent 20 years watching this outdoor classroom develop! It's a great place to run because you do not have to deal with cars, dogs, or pavement! You can "stop and smell the roses" if you choose and learn many plant varieties and their indigenous origins....More
