We had only 1 hour to see it before closing the place. So we had to walk fast to see at least the main garden. It was a beautiful place to take the children. It is a long walk, so if you have small kids...More

We visited during the Twelve Days of Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We rode in one of the "trolley" rides, and learned so much.

The Arboretum is always doing something for the season. Fall and Winter are good times to visit as well as Spring. There is music in the parks during certain times of the year. It is a great family atmosphere.

Breathtaking gardens are extremely well kept all year round. The park is huge and walking can get tiring. Take water in your bag and keep hydrated in the hot months. The perfect place for great pictures

Yes, the ticket price includes the concert. You can bring a blanket or lawn chair. Many people bring in a cart with food and drinks for their family. It's a very pleasant family atmosphere.
