    Great for Walks!

    The arboretum was the perfect length walk, not too long but not too short! The trails are mostly shady so sunscreen is not a must, but I would recommend a good but spray! There is some poison ivy in certain areas of the trail so be careful to make sure your furry friend stays on the path! Parking was conveniently located for $5.00. Don’t forget to bring water for yourself and your pup! Additionally if you’ve got a new puppy you’re looking to socialize this is a great trail, there were lots of people of varying ages to expose your dog to!

    Nice place for casual walk

    Located in Memorial Park it is very similar to the other trails. Nice trees and ponds. No flowers. A LOT of mosquitoes so bring repellent or long sleeves.

    Females, don't go alone!

    This place is AMAZING and my dog loves it, but if you are a female I would not advise coming here alone. These trails are extremely isolated and a perfect place for creeps. If you have a protective dog or buddy to join you, it's dog heaven!
