The Chesapeake Arboretum sits between two major north-south roads with its south end crossed by another, yet once inside it is quite calm, though rustic - though I guess most are. It seems to lack the amenities found in some. However, if you happen to...More

We enjoy walking the trail and learning about the trees and plans. My daughter and I walked a few miles in the Arboretum and we truly enjoyed the Camellia plants.

Unless you look for the arboretum, you wouldn't suspect there would be nice wooded trails right off of Battlefield Blvd in the middle of lots of homes. These trails are well marked and maintained.

We had a delightful day walking the trails and watching the ducks in the pond. The paths are well kept and it was a wonderful day of everyone.

A hidden gem in the heart of Greenbrier. Nice walking trails throughout but a word of "CAUTION"- use bug spray as the mosquitoes can run you out of there. Ask in the house about the Paw Paw trees.

Very inviting, clean, well keep nature trail. However because the tree top canopy is quite thick, it is a little too shaded in some areas on sunny days, but I am glad the trail is there. It is good to have some undeveloped green space...More

They really have improved this place in the last year. It is well groomed and trails are clean/cleared ready to explore. Very nice place to walk or just smell the flowers!

This is a nice nature trail and can be done in about an hour. There are some steep hills though. It is a little hard to find from the road signs but worth seeing if you are looking for a new short walking trail.
