The arboretum is a great place to hike for families. It is beautifully landscaped with a ton of flowers and a couple water features. Stay on the concrete and walk through the flowers or hit the trails for a hike thru the woods. Very nice!

Hi, the cafe is in the nature center and actually really just a cafeteria style place. However if you take your beverage outside on the terrace or sit by the fireplace in doors it feels like being in a European café.
