Owner description: The first arboretum at a university in Texas, this on-campus garden spills over 19 acres and lies on a portion of the Lanana Creek Trail.
Reviewed 20 November 2017 via mobile

Took a road trip break to visit the arboretum and walked just some of the trails in it and connected to it for a total hike of 6 miles out of a possible 10. The arboretum itself is large and gorgeous, even in November, although it could use more plant descriptions. Trails weaving amongst the trees, shrubs, and beds, connecting to a trail running miles along Lanana Creek. Beautiful outdoor treasure in such a small town: kudos to Stephen F Austin University. This trail rivals many I’ve seen in much larger towns. We felt safe.

The flowers and plants were in bloom, there was a lot of shade and nice easy trails for walking. We had a baby in a stroller and were able to maneuver them well. They also had benches situated along the trails so we could take a break and just sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. This is a great place to go if you love nature and just want to relax and enjoy it.

Interesting arboretum: a wonderful selection a works of arts tucked away in nicely kept garden. Great for a short stroll or just to ponder on one of the many benches.

Wonderful natural retreat; a great walk joined by an adorable wooden footbridge to the Mize Azalea Garden (which got five stars from me because when it's in bloom? Oh my God). As you walk, enjoy the great exhibit of public art provided by Sculpture For All. I think the best one--a truly great sculpture IMHO--may be in the Arboretum rather than the Azalea Garden. Anyway, do it: for an hour of calm, natural, restorative beauty, you can't do much better.

What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon! So many photo opportunities too. We missed the Azalea and Camellia blooming season by weeks however the foliage was still quite colorful. This is an easy walk and perfect for any age.
