It's not bad but not great either. It used to have a bear pit, exotic birds and ducks in the duck pond a wading pool for babies and small children as well as a great snack bar and grill. You could also rent rowboats too. Not anymore sadly.

The arboretum is a small walking gravel loop of a few hundred meters in the middle of Island Park. It is nice enough in that it highlights a variety of different kinds of trees that have been planted there. But unless you are really into trees, the arboretum will probably not be a highlight of your time at Island Park...... More

Island Park and also see the deer pen on the island... Great place to stroll around and there is lots to do taking in the PCU sports arenas and wave pool in the winter and the outdoor Splash Island water park in the summer and tennis courts too....

As my wife used to work at Kew Gardens in Richmond Surrey England this was one place we simply had to go and so glad we did beautiful place feels like the garden of Eden. Wendy even managed to take some cutting which are now growing very well in our back garden in Devon. would defo go again.
