Had a memorial party in the barn. Beautiful interior and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking was plentiful and the staff put up signage directing people to the barn.

First visit was more than expected. Came to see the Insect Sculptures with my granddaughter which we loved. Then we enjoyed the tree houses and goats and the serenity and beauty of the arboretum.

Beautiful, well cared for grounds. Great for a family stroll. Butterfly gardens, tree houses, outdoor sculptures, picnic areas were just a few of the things we saw. Everything was clearly marked and signage explained the significance.

For the most part, they are just off the pathway. There are a few that you would need to walk over grass fields to get closer to (like the giant praying mantis and daddy long legs). I hope this helps!
