Our son took his prom date to the arboretum for pictures. A tribute to the beauty of the place was the fact that there must have been a couple hundred people there. Boys in tuxes, girls in gorgeous dresses and family and friends all posing...More

Good way to see different species of plants, especially Hostas. Not as pristine and well kept as it has been in the past but still worth a look!
