Walking through this place is a tree lovers dream. Trees from all over the world. If yo're like me it gives you ideas about what to buy for your yard. Plus its a great place to walk the dogs.

This is a beautiful, free place to spend a quiet day with family, friends, or on your own. There are hundreds of trees, a rock garden, water (the canal, a pond), bridges, groomed paths. You can walk your dogs, or play with your children here....More

One of our favorite places to take photos and enjoy the outdoors any season of the year. Large gardens, with many varieties of flowers and plants for every season.

You can spend hours walking along river and small forest. Rent kayak, climb trees, picnic under the trees. Peaceful and under-rated!

There's no camping at the Arboretum. I don't know where someone got that idea.
