    Great place!

    There are many beautiful paths through flowers and trees. There are also nice grassy areas to stop and picnic or run around. We even held a doggy get together here!

    Great location

    This is definitely worth a visit. Beautiful landscape and well cared for paved trails.

    Lots of walking!

    You'll go miles and miles with the doggos, and plenty of good photo ops.

    Love the arboretum!

    Beautiful grounds, large grassy areas, some tucked away bits with beautiful views of the river, plenty of short trails, difficult to navigate unless you have a car to go between points unless you really want to get your walk on. You share the road with cars but they tend to be courteous and drive slowly. No accessible water that I could find so bring your own!
