The arboretum is beautiful and a great place to see Peacocks of all shapes and sizes. It was very hot during our visit so would have appreciated more shade, but we had an enjoyable time. The gardens are very well maintained

We went to the arboretum on a very warm morning, but found a good deal of shade as we walked. Our favorite area was the exhibit of Madagascar plants--so strange, and most plants had diabolical thorns! Very interesting. Don't miss a visit to the historic...More

It is not too big and good place for a very pleasant walk. Unless you have a good sense of direction, you will wander around and wonder where you are. But that’s what nature is about.

The gardens are beautiful but the map they give you and the signs are very confusing and do not make sense , resulting in walking in circles and not being able to find things you want to see. The cafeteria: food is not great, the...More

First time visit, wish I had known about the gardens years ago. Well maintained grounds, wonderful Australia and Africa gardens, loved the smells in the herb garden, fun history to see at the old railroad depot building. Peacocks strutting around and showing of their plumage!
