A garden featuring plants named for every letter of the alphabet, many trails, a Chinese Peace Garden, a Veterans' Museum, well-labelled specimen trees - it's a pleasure for the eyes! Also outdoor concerts in the summertime.

Drive by this place so many times never realizing it has such rich history. Cute museum on WW1 with a very knowledgeable curator. Arboretum worth the visit. Peaceful and tranquil.

Visited for their Halloween train show. A good place to visit with young kids. Easy to park and walk. A cute gift shop to visit too at the arboretum.

Just a beautiful, quiet place with several different venues to suit your mood on any given day. From the main house to the greenhouses there are ideas to be shared.

This was well done. The only disappointment was that they ran out of food 3 hours prior to the end of the event. The food person while lovely, admitted that they didn't anticipate enough food for the event, sad. At least this man was honest.
