Lovely afternoon trip

My little ones and I enjoy wandering through the arboretum, beautiful all year round. Not very large, but still a nice place to stroll through, or take photos.

So, I love gardens. I make a point to see as many garden and arboretums as possible around the world. This one is nice, but very small. I waled it and took pics in about 15 minutes, with a very slow walk. I don't mean to make light of this garden, because it is a nice little garden. Took some... More

This is a small arboretum on a small lot. The people (probably volunteers) have done well with what they have. Most of the plants are exotics--i.e., non-natives. I would prefer more native species, especially trees. It appeared to me that, within the last 10 years, they planted some mountain hemlock (which are now about 12' high and quite beautiful, though...

I guess for Everette, it's ok. ...barely. First, the entrance is weird, because it's right beside a chain link fence area with not "pretty" things behind it. Shrubbery or something. ..ANYTHING, should be there hiding it. Two, I realize there is probably no size mandate on an Arboretum, but really, this is ridiculously small. I've never went to an "arboretum"... More

Didn't see anything on the internet about closures. Drove there and the gates were closed. Trying to take advantage of a few moments without rain and get outdoors.

The arboretum seems to be a community project and has many twists and turns. The artwork is impressive and the path is dry even in the rain.

This is a place where the surrounding simply collect you into themselves and the world can wait outside. Very Beautiful and tranquil and botanically educational.

It's fairly small but very beautiful at the same time. It has some very nice plants. The location is great. It's very close to the golf course and easy to find.

Love it! Wasn't crowded, not very many people at all. A lovely garden! Great place to walk your dog. Kind of small but was just right.

Walk so, take your time, this park is very small. There are beautiful plantings and sculptures dancing together under the trees. We really enjoy strolling through the arboretum when we are out walking our dog. If you are at Legion Park, you should stop by.
