Very nice in September, but I would definitely try and see this again in the Spring or Fall when colors are changing...it should be gorgeous

this property was owned by a physician but is now a wonderful place to stroll or ride your back. the home is now a conference center as well. If you are in Bentonville, use this area to stretch your legs and just enjoy the stroll.

What a beautiful place to enjoy nature. Many native plants of Arkansas. Stroll along and unwind. You can walk to Crystal Bridges Museum by going through these gardens.

We enjoyed walking around Compton Gardens. It wasn't the best season to be at a garden, but the paths were nice for an easy walk. I would like to visit again in the Spring to see the difference.

Beautiful trails and an easy &relaxing walk. Go when spring is in bloom or for the fall colors. The rental facility us small but nice. The deck is a fantastic space for 25-30 people.

Beautiful place to visit! Bring comfy walking shoes, because this is a must stop on your visit to NWA! It's a family activity or a visit just by yourself.
